However, the film will make its debut on OTT platforms soon. The Hindi version of it will stream on Netflix, while Tamil and Telugu rights of Thalaivii have been acquired by Amazon Prime Video.

Jaya-Ji wanted Aishwarya to play her..my hunch is JJ wud have approved of Kangana's portrayal Thumbs up. As for @thearvindswamy, he is MGR's reincarnate!!”
