Rajinikanth's 'Petta' confirmed as Pongal 2019 release


Although Karthik Subbaraj's films have earned wide critical acclaim, his recent movies have not done well at the box-office.

In the new poster, Rajinikanth and Simran look gorgeous as a couple.

Well, that was in the year 2005, and now after fourteen years, a Superstar movie would face competition if the current release schedules are followed without any change.

That said, there had been quite a lot of talk surrounding "Superstar" Rajinikanth's Petta entering the Pongal race, which has now been officially confirmed by Sun Pictures and director Karthik Subbaraj.

In case you did not know, Petta is a multi-starrer and also features "Makkal Selvan" Vijay Sethupathi in the lead.

On a related note, this is a busy time for Rajinikanth.

As of now, Ajith's Viswasam is expected to hit screens on January 10 if we take into consideration the team's Thursday sentiment while Rajinikanth's Petta is said to be coming out the next day on+ January 11. The film has been produced by Sun Pictures and is made on a huge budget. Anirudh Ravichander will compose music for his first Rajinikanth starrer. It is also Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui's first Tamil film.

Petta also stars Malavika Mohanan, Megha Akash and Bobby Simha among others in important roles.

The post-production work of the movie is in full swing.
