Actor Varun of Bigg Boss Tamil 5 fame will be seen playing the lead in the upcoming Gautham Vasudev Menon directorial, Joshua: Imai Pol Kaakha which is fully complete and ready for release. Varun plays the titular character in this action thriller which has debutant Raahei playing the female lead. Produced by Ishari K Ganesh under the banner of Vels Film International, the film has music composed by Karthik and cinematography by SR Kathir. In a recent exclusive interview with Galatta Media, producer Ishari K Ganesh shared interesting updates on Joshua, including that of the release plans.

He revealed that the film might go for a direct OTT release due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic situation. Talking about Joshua, he said, "Joshua is fully completed and ready. We have got the first copy. Our plan was to release the film in theatres around the Valentines Day weekend (Feb 14). Due to the Covid-19 situation, the theatres are running only with 50% occupancy. So, we are looking for the possibilities of taking the film for a direct OTT release. For sure, the film will be released before the end of next month (February). Joshua will have a Hollywood style presentation with only love and action".

During the interview, Ganesh was all praise for Varun for his stint in the Bigg Boss. Varun happens to be Ishari K Ganesh's nephew. "Yes! Varun managed to stay inside the house for 85 days and he came out with such a positive name. Even I did not expect him to stay that long in the house. I am happy that he has now earned the love of the people. Joshua also got good visibility through Bigg Boss as we launched the 'Tappasu Neram' song and the trailer there in the presence of Kamal Haasan sir", Ishari K Ganesh concluded.

Alright, time for us to gear up and get ready to witness Joshua.
