While speaking about the songs in the film, Karthik revealed that out of the eight songs, two or three songs might not make it to the Netflix version.

All is not lost for fans as Karthik also added that a complete version of the film, with the songs, will be released in the TV version. "I think when the film streams on television after a few months, we might get to see those songs in the film.," he said
Produced by Sashikanth, under his banner Y Not Studios, Jagame Thandhiram also stars Aishwarya Lekshmi, Kalaiyarasan, Sanchana Natarajan and James Cosmo. The film will premiere on Netflix on June 18.
