PS1 OTT Release Date
PS1 began filming in December 2019 and was supposedly finished in September 2021; the movie is still in post-production. Regarding the film’s digital premiere, it was previously reported that its producers were considering it because of the film’s protracted development delay.
Further, the producers denied all of the allegations, claiming that movies like Ponniyin Selvan are only produced for theatres and that they have not yet considered the historical film’s digital debut.
Ponniyin Selvan may, however, be made accessible for streaming after its theatrical release; this is most likely to happen after the movie’s four-week run in theatres during the first week of October 2022.
