According to the reports the producers of the and national multiplexes are clashing over the time gap between its theatrical and digital release.
Kangana also shared a note that read, “No films are choosing theatres. Very few and very brave like my producers @visfinienduri @shaaileshrsingM1 are compromising on huge profits and letting go off exclusive streaming options only for the love of cinema… in these times we must support each other and not bully or arm twist, it’s our fundamental right to recover the cost of our film which we did, we may have two weeks window for Hindi version but for south we have four weeks window yet multiplexes ganging up on us and stopping our release there as well —This is unfair and cruel in these testing times when major territories like Maharashtra are also shut —Please help each other in order to save theatres. (sic).”
Meanwhile, the film received a ‘U’ certificate from the CBFC. Thalaivii is directed by AL Vijay and also features Arvind Swamy as MGR.
