Despite positive reviews, Dharala Prabhu couldn't continue its theatrical run due to the closure of movie halls in Tamil Nadu to control the coronavirus outbreak.
Produced by Screen Scene, Harish Kalyan, Tanya Hope, and Vivek played the lead roles in the film which is the remake of Hindi hit Vicky Donor.
"These are testing times for all of us. We prioritize safety ahead of anything else in the world. In the wake of Corona outbreak, requesting all patrons to take necessary precautions in staying safe and being indoors We're taking this opportunity to make an appeal to the audience. A lot of effort and love has gone behind making 'Dharala Prabhu' - a movie that carries a strong and relevant message to people across sections. Your support has been overwhelming and exceptional thus far. It's rather unfortunate that we had a chance to showcase our movie only for just 3 days from the time of release. We kindly request the audience to avoid piracy during this period and support our film with a big heart. We'll hopefully be back on screens very soon, of course with your continued support. We hereby inform you all that as soon as this crucial phase gets over and as the theatres start functioning, Dharala Prabhu will be back on the screens", read an official statement from Screen Scene.
