Actor Jayam Ravi’s upcoming Tamil film Bhoomi, which happens to be his 25th project, is likely to skip theatres and be released directly on an OTT platform.
Latest reports suggest Bhoomi will be the first mainstream Tamil film to have its premiere on Disney+ Hotstar. But an official announcement from the makers is awaited.
Ravi, who was last seen playing a man who wakes up from a coma after several years in Comali (2019), will essay the role of a farmer in Bhoomi.
Talking about the film, director Lakshman had said in a media interaction, “Unlike in his previous 24 films, the actor will be giving back to society with this film. It has an agriculture-based subject, and he will be playing a farmer. There will be a social message, on the lines of Shankar sir’s films.”
Bhoomi also marks the Tamil cinema debuts of Nidhhi Agerwal and Ronit Roy, the latter playing the antagonist. This will be Roy’s second Southern film. He has starred in the Telugu film Jai Lava Kusa (2017) starring Jr NTR.
