After Jyotika’s Ponmagal Vandhal (2020) and Keerthy Suresh’s Penguin (2020), more Tamil producers have expressed interest in releasing their films on OTT platforms. Penguin will premiere worldwide on Amazon Prime on 19 June. It will be the second mainstream Tamil film after Ponmagal Vandhal to directly opt for OTT release, bypassing theatres due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Penguin, directed by Eeshwar Karthic, also stars Rangaraj and Linga in crucial roles. Produced by Karthik Subbaraj’s Stone Bench Films, the film has music by Santosh Narayanan.
On the career front, Keerthy also awaits the release of her Telugu film Miss India (2020), which was to hit the theatres in April but has been postponed due to the lockdown. Directed by Narendra Nath, the film also stars Jagapathi Babu, Naveen Chandra, Rajendra Prasad, Naresh, Bhanushree Mehra, Sumanth S, Poojitha Ponnada, Kamal Kamaraju and Nadiya in crucial roles.
Keerthy also has a yet-untitled Telugu sports comedy with director Nagesh Kukunoor. The film also stars Aadi Pinisetty in a crucial role.
