Kangana Ranaut starrer Thalaivi, based on former actress and former Tamil Nadu CM J Jayalalithaa, is releasing on 10 September. The film was supposed to release last year, although it could not happen due to the lockdown in the cinema halls. However, now just a few days before the release of the film, Kangana’s film seems to be in trouble again. The cinema halls have refused to release the actress’s film, so the actress has appealed to them and pleaded for help.
Kangana Ranaut has appealed to the owners of cinemas on social media saying, no movie is releasing in theatres, only our producers Vishnu and Shailesh are courageous people who love cinema by compromising on their profits and rejecting exclusive streaming. Releasing the film in theatres. In this difficult time, we should not help each other nor should we fight and drag our hands. It is our fundamental right to recover the cost of our film.
The actress further wrote, “In Hindi, we have a window of two weeks and for South, we have a window of four weeks, yet the multiplexers are not releasing the film by ganging up against us. When cinema halls of a big state like Maharashtra are also closed, it is wrong to do so in this difficult time. Please help each other to save cinema halls.
Sharing a video on social media, Kangana said, as per the contract of the theatre, there should be a window of four weeks. In Hindi, we understand that they must have some excuse but in South Industry our film is made in three languages and we have kept a window of four weeks but we are not releasing our film there also. They are taking names of some big studios, saying that we have a contract with Yash Raj people, they will not allow this.
The actress further said I want to ask that under the guise of a couple of studios, they are eliminating individual producers, tomorrow if people in the same theater cancel the shows if they do not come, will their contracts still apply.
