Vaibhav’s ‘RK Nagar’ Finally Gets An Official Release On Netflix

RK Nagar Movie Stills Starring Vaibhav, Anjena Kriti & Others

On Tuesday evening, Vaibhav starrer RK Nagar finally saw a direct release on the OTT platform, Netflix. The long-delayed film helmed by Vadacurry fame Saravana Ranjan was supposed to hit screens about a year back but could not, owing to several financial constraints.


The film had earlier premiered on Netflix, its digital partner, before it hit screens, but was removed within 6 hours stating that a misunderstanding had occurred. But to their dismay, the infamous Tamilrockers website had already uploaded the film on their site, making it available to audiences.

Bankrolled by Venkat Prabhu‘s Black Ticket Company and Badri Kasturi and V Rajalakshmi’s Shraddha Entertainment, RK Nagar has Sana Althaf and Anjena Kirti playing the female leads with Sampath Raj, Karunakaran, T Siva, Inigo Prabhakaran and several others in important roles.

Venkat Prabhu took to Twitter to announce the news.

The non-political film, as the makers claim it to be, features four narratives with commercial elements weaved in. Venkatesh S has handled the camera, editing is by Praveen KL, music is by actor Premgi Amaren and art is by Videsh. Don Ashok has choreographed stunt with Kalyan choreographing dance. Vasuki Bhaskar has designed the costumes for the film.

Amidst the ongoing issue regarding the direct release of Jyotika starrer Ponmagal Vandhal on the OTT, the release of RK Nagar has left audiences furious. While the Tamil Nadu Theatre and Multiplex Owners Association have not opposed the direct release of the latter, film buffs are curious to find out why the former isn’t being supported.

The association had stated a few days back that they would not release the films of actor Suriya or his home banner 2D Entertainment, that has bankrolled Ponmagal Vandhal, hereafter because of their refusal to comply with the appeal made by the association to release it in theatres first.

While support has been pouring in for Suriya and the film, there hasn’t been a response from the Tamil Nadu Theatre and Multiplex Owners Association to the issue. Several producers have also requested all film associations to support the decisions taken by small producers in order to help the industry grow.
