Rajinikanth's Padayappa pulled off from Amazon Prime
Rajinikanth's iconic blockbuster Padayappa directed by KS Ravikumar turned 20 on April 9th. It marked KS Ravikumar's second with the superstar after the success of Muthu in 1995, received a much coveted box-office date – released a day before the Tamil New Year – and went on to become the highest grossing Tamil film at that point.

It is been two decades now, it still remains one of Rajinikanth's most popular films and has high recall value among Tamil audiences. It also gave us a unsurpassed lady villain Neelambari played by Ramya Krishnan.

Recently Padayappa wad made available on Amazon Prime video and fans rejoiced the mass commercial entertainer on OTT. Fans shared screenshots from the film on social media and rejoiced the nostalgic mass moments. But someone was not happy with it, yes!

It's well known that Rajinikanth's Arunachala Cine Creations had bankrolled Padayappa, and so they were mighty upset by this new development. They haven't given the OTT rights to anyone but later found out that another player indirectly sold it to Amazon Prime. Now, the producers have solved the issue and the film is no longer available on the platform. When verified the movie is available in other regions (but not in India).

Sources say that if Arunachala Cine Creations get the right deal, the film will go live once again on the platform. Directed by KS Ravikumar, Padayappa features Soundarya, Ramya Krishnan, Abbas, Lakshmi, and Senthil in the lead.
