Dhanush’s Jagame Thanthiram, which was originally planned to be released on May 1, 2020 but was postponed due to the pandemic. 

Now, reports are rife that the movie directed by Karthik Subbaraj will release on Netflix.

Not long ago, director Karthik Subbaraj had also clarified that they have no plans of releasing the film on any OTT platform.
