Vijay Sethupathi, who was last seen in Netflix’s Navarasa, announced that his next film, Laabam, will hit the silver screens on September 9. There were earlier a lot of speculations that the film will release on an OTT platform, however, all the rumours got sidelined when Vijay made the announcement along with a poster. Sharing the happy news and a poster, Vijay Sethupathi wrote, “#Laabam Grand Release On September 9th in Theaters Near You (sic).”With theatres reopening, a lot of Telugu films too like Gopichand and Tamannaah’s Seetimaarr among others are all set to release on big screens.

Directed by SP Jananathan, Laabam is a socio-political drama and features Shruti Haasan in the female lead role. While Ramji was hired as cinematographer, D. Imman was roped in for music. The film went on floors in 2020 and the makers earlier had plans to release it in theatres in May 2020. However, it was postponed due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.
