The coronavirus scare in the country a lot of things have changed. A statewide lockdown had been announced about two weeks ago in Maharashtra. And hence a lot of the production houses moved the base of their shoots from Maharashtra to other states. As the situation across the country deteriorates, the film industry has to take some drastic steps such as postponing their film releases or switching to OTT platforms. And joining the same is Dhanush-starrer Jagame Thandiram makers. While the decision was taken in February, the release date of the Netflix film is out now. The Twitter official handle of Netflix India shared the poster of Jagame Thandiram with Dhanush's closeup while announcing the release date. They tweeted out saying, "Suruli oda aatatha paaka naanga ready! Neenga ready ah? #JagameThandhiram coming on 18th June (sic)." Have a dekko at the tweet here:
