Superstar Rajinikanth turns 68 today. As a birthday gift, the makers of Petta released the film’s teaser.
The teaser gives us a glimpse of Rajinikanth in two avatars, sporting a handlebar moustache and a bearded look.
The teaser ends on Rajinikanth’s trademark pose – the way he wears his sunglasses in circular motion.
Directed by Karthik Subbaraj, the film also stars Simran, Trisha Krishnan, Vijay Sethupathi and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in pivotal roles.
Petta marks the first collaboration of Rajinikanth and Karthik Subbaraj. At the audio launch of Petta, Rajinikanth said, “Karthik has a very different style of storytelling. He directed this film like a true Rajinikanth fan. Petta is an entertaining throwback to the kind of films I did in 1990s. Karthik has extracted from me the kind of work I used to perform three to four decades ago,” reported news agency IANS.
Petta is slated to release during Pongal.
