The much-anticipated look of Rajinikanth from his forthcoming project Annaatthe, was released on social media on Friday. Rajinikanth can be seen in the poster posing in a traditional outfit with an ear-to-ear grin on his face.
Rajinikanth’s co-star this time is none other than the National Award winning actress Keerthy Suresh, who shared the first poster of the film on social media. Having shared the poster, Keerthy wrote: “The first look we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived and I can’t keep calm.” She added, “Here’s to an adventurous journey ahead.”
Ahead of the big reveal, Rajinikanth’s daughter Soundarya had shared a glimpse of sorts of the poster. She wrote in her post: “And I can assure you all, this motion poster is worth all the wait. Our Thalaivar at his best. D Imman Sir has rocked the BGM and director Siva sir and team. Thank you from a Thalaivar fan.”
Annaatthe is slated to release on Diwali this year. Besides Rajinikanth and Keerthy Suresh, the film also features Nayanthara in a pivotal role. The film has been directed by Siva.
This year, Rajinikanth will receive the Dadasaheb Phalke Award – India’s highest film honour – for his stupendous contribution to Indian cinema. Union Minister Prakash Javadekar tweeted in April that the actor will be receiving the 51st Dadasaheb Phalke Award for 2019.
The actor was last seen in the 2020 film Darbar.
