Sun Pictures took to Twitter to make the announcement via a special poster, which features Rajinikanth and Simran as a happy-go-lucky pair. Petta, which is directed by Karthik Subbaraj, also stars Vijay Sethupathi, Mega Akash, Bobby Simhaa, Trisha and Sasikumar. The film marks the southern debut of Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who is rumoured to be playing Rajinikanth’s friend.
In October, Rajinikanth tweeted that the shoot of Petta was wrapped up 15 days ahead of schedule and he thanked his director and producers for their support. The title and motion poster of the film were released in September.
