DHANUSH'S JAHAME THANDHIRAM OPTS FOR A DIGITAL DIWALI RELEASE
Dhanush's much-awaited film Jagame Thandhiram, directed by Karthik Subbaraj may release online on Diwali 2020. According to media reports, the film's makers are not keen on waiting for the theaters to reopen and are now planning to go ahead with an OTT release.
A source close to the Jagame Thandhiram team confirmed the same to a portal and said, "As of now, the makers have zeroed in Diwali as the film's release date. Initially, they were willing to wait for the theatres to re-open and even informed the fans about their decision. But, the uncertainty in re-opening of theatres seems to have pushed the team to think of alternative ways," the source added.
