In a pleasant surprise to superstar fans, a new poster of Petta, starring Rajinikanth and Simran Bagga, hit the Internet today.
Within minutes of its release, hashtag #Petta found a spot on Twitter’s trend list besting the other top entertainment trend of the day – ‘#DeepVeerKiShaadi’ (for Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh’s wedding today).
The poster has confirmed that it’s Pongal release. The poster shows Rajini sharing a moment with Simran, the two laughing with a spring in their step while carrying flowers in decorative pots.
The two are seen dressed in sweaters and scarves and walking the other way from a crowded street.
The former has donned a wig and a pair of glasses with trimmed beard remaining one of the attractions in his new avatar. The latter will be seen sporting long hairs and her charming smile has already caught viewers’ attention.
With the poster, it has become official that Petta will clash with Ajith’s Viswasam which too is hitting the screens for Pongal.
This is the first time that Rajinikanth and Ajith are locking horns at the box-office in the history of Tamil cinema. While both films will battle for the 1200 odd screens in Tamil Nadu, it’s certainly going to be one of the most significant clashes in K’town.
Meanwhile, RJ Balaji’s political entertainer LKG, which marks his debut as a lead hero, has also confirmed its release date for Pongal and made a surprise entry to the harvest festival.
