In a huge surprise to fans, the second look of Petta was revealed on Thursday night and it featured superstar Rajinikanth in a ultra youth look.
The ‘thalaivar’, sporting dhoti and shirt with ‘viboothi’ on his forehead, was also seen in handlebar moustache and he was wearing his typical smile.
Even as fans went ga ga over the new look, it has emerged that Rajini is playing a Madurai-based gangster in this movie directed by Karthik Subbaraj and produced by Sun Pictures.
From the two posters released so far, Rajinikanth seems to be playing a gangster who hides his identity as a college warden for some reasons just like how he used auto driver mask in Baashha.
Directed by Karthik Subbaraj, Petta has an ensemble of actors including Simran, Trisha, Vijay Sethupathi, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Bobby Simha, Sanath, and Megha Akash in pivotal roles.
The title of Petta roughly translates to stronghold.
In the first look motion poster which was released recently, Rajini sports a beard and coolers, walking with a weapon while flashing his trademark smile.
Recently, the social media witnessed a sudden buzz when it was claimed that a few stunt scenes from superstar Rajinikanth’s Petta from Lucknow have been leaked.
