Kangana Ranaut‘s upcoming release, Thalaivi, was an anticipated film among her fans. The multi-lingual film, based on the life and times of the late actress and Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, J Jayalalithaa, was all set to release on 23rd April theatrically.

However, given the number of COVID-19 cases all over the country has spiked in the past few days, the makers took a decision to push the release.

Just today, the official handle of the film released a note that read:

Dear audience, we are extremely grateful for the tremendous response and unconditional love you’ve shown for Thalaivi trailer. 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.

The film also stars Arvind Swami alongside Kangana and the trailer which release a few days ago was met with a lot of excitement and enthusiasm.

We look forward to watching the film on the big screen very soon.
