Actor Jayam Ravi on Thursday confirmed that his next Tamil film Bhoomi will skip theaters and be released directly via Disney + Hotstar for the Pongal festival next year. The film stars him in the role of a farmer.
In a statement he shared on Twitter, Ravi talked about the decision to release his 25th Bhoomi movie on an OTT platform. “Bhoomi is a milestone in many ways in my career. In addition to being my 25th project and one that is very close to my heart for this reason, it adds to the list of films released at the time of Covid. As much as I looked forward to watching the movie with my dear fans in the cinema, the universe had other plans in helping me pay their respects by bringing Bhoomi into their homes. I am thrilled, along with Disney + Hotstar, to be part of your Pongal 2021 celebrations right in the heart of your homes. ”
Ravi, who was last seen as a man awakening from a coma after many years in Comali, will be seen as a farmer in Bhoomi. The whole project is meant to be set against the backdrop of a village and Ravi will be seen in a very different avatar.
Speaking of the film, director Lakshman said in a media interaction: “Unlike his previous 24 films, the actor will be returning it to society with this film. He has a subject based on agriculture and will play a farmer. There will be a social message, along the lines of Shankar Sir’s films. “

The film marks Jayam Ravi and Lakshman’s third collaboration after Romeo Juliet and Bogan. Bhoomi is also played by Niddhi Agerwal and Ronit Roy and both make their Tamil debut with this project.
Ronit plays the antagonist. This will be Ronit’s second southern outing as he previously starred in the Telugu film Jai Lava Kusa with Jr NTR.
