What platform will it release on?

Many directors in India are currently opting for OTT releases due to the impact of the pandemic on theatrical releases. This means Beast could potentially head straight for OTT.

A previous title of actor Vijay’s is Master, which released earlier this year theatrically before making its way onto Amazon Prime Video. This could also be the case for Beast, should Prime Video acquire streaming rights to the film.

While the director and producer of Master had decided to help theatre owners after the effects of the pandemic, the release of Beast could be dependent on the situation in India but will likely be released theatrically first and then head to OTT.

By the time of the film’s expected to release in 2022, restrictions could also have eased, opening cinemas in India. So where the film will definitively be released remains uncertain, we hope to know more by winter 2021.

Please note: No information on where the film will be released has been made available, at this time.
