Natural Star Nani has defended the decision of Shine Screens to release ‘Tuck Jagadish’ directly on OTT. The film, whose trailer was released on Wednesday evening, will stream on Amazon Prime from September 10.
Faced with criticism over the decision to bypass the theatres, Nani was asked about the somewhat unexpected decision. “I have immense respect for them (those from the Telangana Theatres Association who recently criticized Nani). They have achieved so much. But let me say that each film has its own set of dynamics and realities to live with. ‘Tuck Jagadish’ is heading for a direct OTT release because of the prevailing (covid) situation. When, in the future, everything is normal and if I still prefer a direct OTT release, I will ban myself from movies. I won’t wait for others to ban me,” Nani said.
The film’s trailer suggests that the Shiva Nirvana directorial is an out-and-out family-action drama.
