Two-time National Award-winning actor Dhanush’s upcoming film, Jagame Thandhiram, under Karthik Subbaraj's direction is all set for a grand premiere on June 18, with promotions being carried out extensively by global streaming giant, Netflix. Produced by S. Sashikanth’s Y Not Studios banner and featuring music by Santhosh Narayanan, it was announced earlier this week that the much-awaited Jagame Thandhiram trailer will be released on June 1. Having said that, Netflix is leaving no stone unturned in their promotions, with their latest initiative showing popular Mumbai-based concept artist and cosplayer Medha Srivastava transforming herself as Dhanush's Suruli character. 

Billed to be an international gangster film with a story set in the United Kingdom, Jagame Thandhiram is skipping its theatrical release and coming out as a direct OTT release on Netflix in view of the COVID-19 pandemic. The three songs released from the film - 'Rakita Rakita', 'Bujji' and 'Nethu' - turning out to be big hits, with all sights now set on the trailer, which is expected to raise the curiosity from the visuals that were shown in the teaser a few months back. The teaser showed Dhanush, a small-time gangster named Suruli in Madurai, who leaves for London for an unfinished business, with the Jagame Thandhiram trailer set to show more power-packed action. 

Jagame Thandhiram will see Dhanush paired opposite popular Malayalam actress Aishwarya Lekshmi, with Hollywood actor and Game of Thrones fame James Cosmo playing the prime antagonist. The film has a talented supporting cast featuring names like Joju George, Kalaiyarasan, Sharath Ravi, Sanchana Natarajan, Super Deluxe fame Ashwanth among others, inclujding cinematographer Shreyaas Krishna and editor Vivek Harshan forming the core technical team.
