The actress believes the film's scale is 'massive' and hence it has to release in theatres too.

With so many films going direct to online platforms, bypassing traditional theatrical release, there was a buzz in sections of the media that Kangana Ranaut's much-anticipated film, Thalaivi, might also take the same route.

However, going by what the actress has to say about the issue in a pinkvilla.com report, it is clear that Thalaivi is cut out for a big-screen release.

Asked about her opinion on the direct-to-streaming trend, and if she is okay with the idea, Kangana said: "It depends. For example, a film like Thalaivi just can't release on digital because it is such a massive scale film. A film like Manikarnika is also not a digital space film. But yes, films like Panga, Judgementall Hai Kya also cater to that audience. The way the film is made, it is very digital-friendly. They have recovered huge costs through digital itself. So, it depends."

The Pinkvilla report also quoted her as saying: "For Thalaivi, it is a bilingual film. As a matter of fact, the film is sold to both Netflix and Amazon in both Hindi and Tamil for around Rs55 crore."
