Actor Shanthanu Bhagyaraj's latest movie Raavana Kottam is all set to make its OTT debut soon. The Tamil audience living outside India can stream this movie on Simpy South starting on June 9. While the digital release plans for India are yet to be revealed, it's expected that the movie will be available on a popular platform in India simultaneously. We will update this article soon after we know the film's digital partner in India.
Shanthanu had big expectations from Raavana Kottam. He had hoped that this movie will give him the much-awaited break at the box office. Ahead of the film's release on May 12, Shanthanu posted a video on his social media page explaining to the audience how important this movie was for his career.
Shanthanu reflected on his career so far spanning more than 10 years. Shanthanu made his debut as a lead actor with Sakkarakatti in 2008. However, things didn't turn out the way he hoped for. "Whatever I thought I would achieve with the release of Sakkarakatti, nothing happened. That was when I understood what's cinema and the impact of reviews. I did many movies after that and I don't know if you would even recognise some of them if I say their names," he had said.
Shanthanu also regretted that the break he hoped for with his role in Thalapathy Vijay's blockbuster movie Master also didn't come to pass . He revealed how heartbroken he was when his role was shortened in the movie, despite shooting for the movie for many days.
"As far as cinema is concerned, it doesn't matter where you are coming from, your hard work matters. That's how I did Ravana Kottam. I have worked with the same enthusiasm and passion as my maiden project. Only this time around, I have a ten-year career behind me," he said.
Raavana Kottam, however, opened in cinemas to mixed reviews and it didn't make any dent at the box office. However, Shanthanu's performance garnered good reviews. Will the movie find its audience after its digital release? Only time will tell.
Written and directed by Vikram Sugumaran, the movie also stars Prabhu and Anandhi in the lead roles.
