After releasing in theatres earlier this month, Kangana Ranaut starrer Thalaivii is now streaming on Netflix. The J Jayalalithaa biopic directed by AL Vijay and written by KV Vijeyandra Prasad, also starred Arvind Swami.
Earlier, Kangana had taken to her Instagram stories, and had hailed it as one of the ‘best films of her career’ so far.
While Thalaivii opened with warm reviews by film critics, it suffered losses as theatres in Mumbai and Kerala are still shut, and the footfall of moviegoers is still low in other parts of the country. Multiplex chains PVR Cinemas and INOX Leisure Ltd refused to screen the Hindi version of the film saying that the window to its Netflix premiere was too narrow.
The film was earlier scheduled to release in April, but was postponed, owing to the second wave of Covid-19 that hit India. Now, as the film is streaming on Netflix, many will be finally able to catch Thalaivii for the first time.
