It has been reported that Netrikann is gearing up for an OTT release due to the second wave of pandemic.

If things fall in place, Netrikann will be premiered on the platform in July 2021, mostly by the first week. However, the team is yet to finalise the release date of the Nayanthara starrer.
The sources suggest that the makers are planning to officially announce the release date, once it is finalised. To the unversed, Netrikann was originally planned as a theatrical release.

The song, which is composed by the young musician Girishh Gopal, is sung by the renowned playback singer Sid Sriram. Karthik Netha has penned the lyrics for the song.
Netrikann, which is directed by Milind Rau, is said to be an official adaptation of the 2011-released Korean crime thriller Blind. As per the reports, Nayanthara is playing the role of a cadet in a police academy who loses her eyesight after a tragic incident, in the highly anticipated project.
