Kangana Ranaut desperately requests theatres to screen her next project, ‘Thalaivii’, says the theaters are “ganging up” against the film

Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut is all set for her new project ‘Thalaivii’. The movie is set to release on September 10 and the actress took to her social media handle to share a note requesting to help each other during the testing times.

The film is a bio pic on the life of actor-turned-politician J Jayalalithaa , while Kangana reveals that the theaters are “ganging up” against the film.

To her note in Instagram, Kangana wrote, “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).”

Kangana shares screenshot of a news report where it was clearly seen her film Thalaivii wasn’t finding takers in multiplex chains on her Instagram stories.

The producer of the film Vishnuvardhan Induri says, “This happens. We are still negotiating with them, but we have to also make sure that we recover our investment. The theatre owners should support us because we are taking the risk of releasing the film in theatres despite the fact that as producers we have got returns from non-theatrical platforms.”

The film also stars Arvind Swami as M. G. Ramachandran Nassar as M. Karunanidhi, Bhagyashree as Sandhya, Samuthirakani as R. M. Veerappan, Raj Arjun as R. M. Veerappan, Madhu Bala as V. N. , Janaki Ramachandran, Jisshu Sengupta as Sobhan Babu, Thambi Ramaiah as M. Natarajan, Poorna as V. K. Sasikala, Flora Jacob as Indira Gandhi, Bharath Reddy, Vidya Pradeep, Shanmugarajan.
