Producer SR Prabhu, best known for bankrolling films such as Aruvi, Maanagaram, Kaithi and NGK, has opened up about the ongoing tussle between theatre owners and producers regarding the direct-to-streaming premiere of Tamil films.
Jyotika’s Ponmagal Vandhal and Keerthy Suresh’s Penguin are all set to be premiered on Amazon Prime.
OTT & Theatrical r different avenues. If at all someone to worry, it’s the non theatrical segment. Also film producers r the only source of content providers for theatres & these 2 are bound for life. So let’s try to survive this pandemic to start over instead of statement wars!
