For the last few days there have been reports claiming that Nani's next film, Tuck Jagadish would go for a direct OTT release on Amazon Prime Video. The reports also suggested that the film will release on September 10, marking the festive occasion of Vinayakar Chathurthi. This speculation created a huge buzz on social media and made the fans worried as they were expecting to watch the film on the big screen. Having said that, Nani has now issued a statement explaining the current situation of the makers of Tuck Jagadish. Nani has mentioned that he is stuck in between as he personally wants the film to have a theatrical release, but the reality suggests an OTT release.

Nani added that he will respect any decision taken by the producer. His official statement read, "I am the biggest fan of theatres and Tuck Jagadish is a quintessential Telugu film which we would've loved watching in a theatre with a full house and it was always meant to be experienced on the big screen for a festival. I am quite torn between the pressures the producers are facing in these uncertain times with big stakes at risk and the fan boy of theatres in me, who wants to watch the film with all of you first day - first show. With the unpredictable conditions here and abroad and the unfortunate restrictions on theatres in Andhra, it has become a conflict of many ways.

I have the utmost respect for the producers and I believe any call regarding the film they make, should be theirs. So here I am, at cross roads for the second time! Leaving the decision about Tuck Jagadish to SHINE SCREENS and all stake holders and will humbly accept their final decision. No matter what, I will do my 100% till it reaches all of you in whatever way". Tuck Jagadish is directed by Shiva Nirvana of Ninnu Kori fame and features Ritu Varma and Aishwarya Rajesh as the female leads. Tuck Jagadish is expected to be a commercial family drama.
