Vikram and Pa. Ranjith, the National award-winning actor and acclaimed filmmaker are joining hands for Thangalaan, the upcoming period action drama. The much-awaited project, which was originally supposed to hit the big screens on January 26, 2024, has been postponed indefinitely due to the delay in its post-production works. Even though later it was rumoured that Thangalaan might get released in April 2024, the recent updates suggest that the Chiyaan Vikram starrer is delayed further.

Earlier, it was reported that the Pa. Ranjith directorial is slated to hit the theatres in April 2024.

However, the film industry insiders, including the producer of the project, KE Gnanavel Raja, assured that it will be a ‘world-class film’ .
