In a virtual press conference, RJ Balaji made a surprise announcement that his upcoming film Mookuthi Amman, starring Nayanthara in the lead, would be the big Diwali release on Disney+Hotstar. The film was planned for a theatrical release earlier this year but Balaji had to rethink his options, given the current circumstances. “We have seen actors such as Ramya Krishnan, Bhanupriya, and Meena play the role of Amman. Now, we have the lady superstar [Nayanthara] in this role. Mookuthi Amman is a Saamy film with a social message,” he said.
Balaji also added that the trailer for Mookuthi Amman would be released during the CSK vs RCB match on October 25.
