Personally, I am touched by the kind words that have been used for me and for Team Thalaivii. “

“We would like to call on Ms. Kangana Ranaut, Mr. Vishnu Induri and Mr. Shailesh Singh to maintain a uniform 4-week window in all languages and thus allow all cinemas in the country show ‘Thalaivii’ to the public, on the big screen. “
The statement further read: “Given the severe impact of the ongoing pandemic on our business, PVR cinemas have already agreed to reduce the screening window from 8 weeks to 4 weeks, for all films that are released in the near future.
“This is a temporary step by PVR theaters to help our producing partners realize the full commercial potential of their films while keeping the sanctity of the theater experience intact.”
The film, which will be released in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu, is based on the life of the late Jayalalithaa.
