Let us tell you that a lot of speculations were rife about the film's direct-to-OTT release, thanks to RJ Balaji's recent cryptic tweet. In the tweet, he stated that he would not be a commentator for the IPL (Indian Premier League) this year and wrote, "Thank you so much for this unbelievable love, appreciation and support for Tamil commentary!! Blessed!!! I will be 'coming back to cricket' real soon!! And it's time for Mookuthi Amman."
Mookuthi Amman was earlier scheduled for a theatrical release on May 1, 2020, but was later postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 induced lockdown.
On a related note, earlier during an interaction, RJ Balaji had revealed that the film will be a 100% devotional flick. Mookuthi Amman has an ensemble cast including Smruthi Venkat, Urvashi, Ajay Ghosh, and Indhuja Ravichandran. Interestingly, RJ Balaji essays the lead role in the movie, bankrolled by Ishari K Ganesh. The movie will mark Nayanthara's first attempt in essaying the role of a goddess, Amman.
