Kangana Ranaut: Thalaivi is a massive-scale film, can't release on OTT
The actor recently denied reports that her upcoming biggie might take the direct-to-OTT route
With so many films going direct to OTT, bypassing traditional theatrical release, there was a buzz in sections of the media that Kangana Ranaut's much-anticipated film, Thalaivi might also take the digital route.
However, going by what the actor has to say about the issue, it is clear that Thalaivi is cut out for a big-screen release.
Asked her opinion on the direct-to-OTT trend, and if she is okay with the idea, Kangana said, "It depends. For example, a film like Thalaivi just can't release on digital because it is such a massive-scale film. Nor is a movie like Manikarnika a digital space film. But yes, films like Panga and Judgementall Hai Kya also cater to that audience. The way these films are made is very digital-friendly. They have recovered huge costs through digital itself. So, it depends."
Reports also quoted her as saying, "For Thalaivi, it is a bilingual film. As a matter of fact, the film is sold to both Netflix and Amazon in both Hindi and Tamil for around Rs 55 crore."
