Digital release good, but first choice to watch movies in theaters: Kalaiyarasan

Tamil actor Kalaiyarasan, who plays Deepam in the new Tamil digital release Jagame Thandhiram, says that while digital platforms have many advantages, his first love will always be the movie theatre. “Digital (medium) is very important for all films. There are certain business parameters in cinemas but in digital space we have the freedom to bring in new directors, stories and actors.

The actor said, “Growing up, I have seen films in theatres. We go there and sit for two hours and it’s a great atmosphere. Whatever mood you are in, it is a different atmosphere once you enter the theatre. The coming of the digital world to us is something positive but I want to see my films first in theaters and then on digital.

Kalaiyarasan says that he, like others, likes to watch Jagme Thandiram in theatres first.
He says, I am waiting to see Jagme Thandiram in theaters and whistling with fans. But I am glad that it is released online. My friends abroad will be able to see it. I think everyone will get to see my film and it is a good thing for me

Jagme Thandhiram stars Dhanush and Aishwarya Lakshmi in lead roles. The film is streamed on Netflix.
