RJ Balaji made his debut as a lead hero with the political comedy drama, LKG which turned out to be a big hit at the box office. The grand success of the film has now given him the confidence to make his directorial debut with Mookuthi Amman which is all set for a grand digital release. Mookuthi Amman features Lady Superstar Nayanthara in the titular role, while RJ Balaji, Mouli, Urvashi, Indhuja play important roles. Gautham Karthik and Yaashika Aannand will be seen in cameo roles. The film was initially supposed to release in the theatres and director RJ Balaji assured in his earlier interviews that the film will have a theatrical release only as it has been made for a theatrical viewing experience.

However, due to the ongoing pandemic and the uncertainty prevailing over the normal theatrical experience, the plans have been changed and Mookuthi Amman will have a digital release. The film will have a grand release for the festive occasion of Diwali and it will stream on Disney + Hotstar OTT platform. Mookuthi Amman has become the first direct Tamil film to release on Disney + Hotstar platform. The announcement was made this evening through a virtual live interaction that happened on Disney + Hotstar OTT platform.

Talking about the release, RJ Balaji said, "It has been quite a long time since we saw an Amman film and that is why we thought of making this. We wanted to take this film to a wider audience and I am sure Disney + Hotstar platform will take it to a lot of people. I am working for them in IPL and I know their reach and viewership. Every year, all of us would be eager to watch new Diwali releases. This year, the people of Tamil Nadu can watch Mookuthi Amman as a Diwali special from the comfort of their homes. We are launching the trailer of the film on October 25 during the CSK v RCB IPL match,".

Okay, so get ready to watch Mookuthi Amman this Diwali, only on Disney + Hotstar platform. The trailer will be out on October 25. Produced by Isari K Ganesh under the banner of Vels Film International, Mookuthi Amman is directed by RJ Balaji and NJ Saravanan and has music scored by Girishh of Aval fame.
