Jyotika’s upcoming movie, Ponmagal Vandhal, directed by JJ Fredrick, was scheduled to hit the theatres on March 27. Nevertheless, because of the ongoing COVID-19 lockdown imposed by the federal government, the movie now can have its digital premiere. The movie will likely be launched immediately on Amazon Prime as a substitute of theaters. The movie has been produced by 2D Leisure owned by actor Suriya. It’s now anticipated to stream within the first week of Might. Nevertheless, the Tamil Nadu theatre homeowners affiliation has condemned this transfer. Furthermore, the affiliation’s common secretary Panneerselvam has launched a new video on the choice to not launch Suriya films in theatres.
Panneerselvam has claimed that the producer has not responded to their demand about not releasing in OTT platform. For this reason films from 2D leisure and Suriya will now not be screened in theaters.
“The rule is that films which have been produced for theatres have to be launched on streaming platforms solely after they’re first launched in film theatres. This producer has flouted this rule and has given his film to an OTT platform. We condemn it strongly. We contacted the producer and advised him not to do that, however he didn’t hearken to us. Therefore we have now advised him to launch all the flicks his firm produces and all the flicks associated to him, immediately on OTT platforms. It’s our collective stand that we don’t want these films,” he stated in the video.
This determination may have an effect on the discharge of films like Soorarai Pottru in addition to films from Dream warrior footage.
