Rajinikanth and Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer Petta’s trailer is out today and it’s the best New Year gift for all the Thalaiva fans. The trailer is going crazily viral on the internet and has garnered 5 Million views in just a few hours. In the trailer, Rajinikanth is seen in high-octane action sequences and a killer smile. With muffler and jackets, he sets the screen on with fire with his swag. The film also marks the debut of Nawazuddin in Tamil cinema.
Earlier today, Dhanush took to micro-blogging site Twitter to announce the launch of the trailer. The post reads, “GET RAJINIFIED … thalaivar rage .. the unstoppable phenomenon continues his style, charisma and Pure MAGIC .. here we go .. #petta trailer.”
A few days back, during the audio launch of Petta, Rajinikanth said, “Karthik has a very different style of storytelling. He directed this film like a true Rajinikanth fan. ‘Petta’ is an entertaining throwback to the kind of films I did in the 1990s. Karthik has extracted from me the kind of work I used to perform three to four decades ago.”
