Jagame Thandhiram is all set to premiere on Ott platform Netflix where the film is starring by Dhanush, Aishwarya Lekshmi, Joju George, Kalaiyarasan, Sharath Ravi and James Cosmo and Directed by Karthik Subbaraj.
In the film, Dhanush plays the role of Suruli, a Tamil gangster. Dhanush recently hyped up the character during an interaction on Twitter Spaces. He said, “I like Suruli very much. I keep pestering Karthik Subburaj to write a sequel to Suruli. I like this character so much. I believe that my fans will love this film. I am also confident that besides my fans, others will also appreciate this film.”
Jagame Thandhiram was originally intended to be a theatrical release, but the makers took the OTT route due to the pandemic. Dhanush had earlier made it clear that he is not entirely happy with the release strategy, but he seems to have made peace with it. The actor said on Twitter, “I feel like I waited for this film for a long time now. Finally, this movie is going to reach people, and I am very excited. I wish this film could have been released under better circumstances. And that makes me a bit unhappy.”
Superstar Dhanush believes that Jagame Thandhiram will help reduce people’s stress amid the pandemic. “Right now, everyone is so stressed under the lockdown and I am glad that this film would be a stress-buster for them,” he said.
