Director Karthik Subbaraj is celebrating his birthday today (March 19) and wishes have been pouring in from several quarters for the talented filmmaker. Karthik received a surprise birthday wish from Dhanush who took to his Twitter page to share his birthday wishes. Interestingly, Dhanush called Karthik Subbaraj to be one of the best directors that he has worked with and it looks like the VIP actor had an enjoyable experience working with Karthik in Jagame Thandhiram. Dhanush's tweet read, "Wishing you a very happy birthday @karthiksubbaraj you are easily one of the best directors I have worked with. Keep rocking. God bless".

The tweet has gone viral among the fans who are now looking forward to the release of Jagame Thandhiram. Dhanush's positive words about Karthik indeed tells us that the film is going to be quite exciting to watch. Dhanush and Karthik Subbaraj's highly anticipated Jagame Thandhiram is scheduled to have a direct digital release on the Netflix streaming platform in May or June. Dhanush, Karthik Subbaraj, and the technical team of Jagame Thandhiram, along with the fans, expected the movie to be released in theatres, but the film's producer, Sashikanth had different plans. The producer's decision to release the film directly on the Netflix platform came as a big disappointment for the fans and film buffs as Jagame Thandhiram was a film that was meant to have a theatrical release.

The moments in the film would have appealed much better if it had had a theatrical release. However, we will now have to settle for an OTT release. The teaser of Jagame Thandhiram which released a few weeks before, had got an outstanding response from the audience and it set the expectations bar high. Jagame Thandhiram features popular Malayalam actress Aishwarya Lekshmi as the female lead while Game of Thrones fame Hollywood actor, James Cosmo plays the key antagonist. The film's star cast also includes the likes of Joju George, Kalaiyarasan, Sharath Ravi, Sanchana Natarajan, and others.

The film has music scored by Santhosh Narayanan who has already delivered two chartbuster singles - 'Rakita Rakita Rakita' and 'Bujji'. The rest of the songs are expected to be launched, close to the film's release. Dhanush will be seen playing the role of 'Suruli', who travels from Madurai to London for a mission. Let us keep our fingers crossed and wait for the official announcement regarding the film's release date. For now, check out Dhanush's latest tweet about Karthik Subbaraj here:
