However, the film suffered losses due to COVID pandemic restrictions as theatres in Mumbai and Kerala are still closed. After releasing the film for two weeks, the makers have now released it on the OTT platform Netflix on September 25. Notably, the Hindi version of Thalaivii has been released on Netflix, however, the Tamil and Telugu version of it is scheduled to stream after two weeks. Meanwhile, Thalaivii was earlier slated to hit the theatres in April but was pushed ahead owing to the second wave of COVID that hit India.
