In a statement, the team of ‘Thalaivi’ shared, “As a team, we have sacrificed a lot in making this film and thank every member of the cast and crew who supported us in this challenging but remarkable journey. Since the film has been made in multiple languages, we would like to release it in all languages on the same day. But with an alarming rise in COVID-19 cases, subsequent precautions and lockdowns, even though our film is ready for release on 23rd April, we want to extend all the support towards the government rules and regulations and have decided to postpone release of ‘Thalaivi’. Though we are deferring the release date, we are confident that we will receive as much love from you all then as well. Stay safe and looking forward to everyone’s support.”
Directed by AL Vijay, ‘Thalaivi’ is a biopic on the life of actress turned politician J Jayalalithaa. Apart from Kangana, the film also features, Arvind Swami, Prakash Raj and Bhagyashree in pivotal roles.
