Kangana Ranaut’s much anticipated film ‘Thalaivii’ is finally ready to be released among the fans this month. The film was scheduled to release in April, but due to the second save of Covid-19, the makers had to postpone it. Despite the delays, the film wasn’t put out for OTT release, and instead waited for the theatres to open.
However, Kangana Ranaut recently slammed the multiplex cinema owners for refusing to screen ‘Thalaivii’.
Kangana took to her Instagram and posted a video in which she can be heard saying, “Our film is made with a budget of Rs 90 crore. It is one of the biggest budgeted female-centric films in the history of films in India. Our producers Vishnuvardhan Induri and Shailesh Singh are facing several challenges at this point. They decided to support theatres as we are all theatre-made people. But we didn’t know that we will not get the support that we needed from theatres.”
Accusing the theatre owners of ‘gangism’, Kangana further added, “We have made the money that we used to make the film, so the film is good for us. But cinema halls and multiplex chains are not allowing us to run the film. They have told us that studious like Yash Raj and others are not allowing us to run our film. Theatres and multiplexes should leave ‘gangism’ and ‘groupism’ behind and think of ways to bring the audiences back to the cinema halls.”
In conclusion, she requested her fans, “I need your support and I know I’ll get it from you, if multiplexes don’t screen our movie, please watch it in single screens, and later on streaming platforms.”
After the backlash by Kangana, PVR decided to screen Tamil and Telugu versions of the film. It will hit the screens on 10th September.
