The trailer of Rajinikanth starrer Petta is here and it is a treat to all his fans. The project is helmed by Karthik Subbaraj. In it, the Thalaiva is seen as a gangster cum cool college warden. With muffler and jackets, he sets the screen on with fire with his swagger. His high-octane action sequences and killer smile will not let you blink. The film also features actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui and marks his debut in the Tamil cinema. He is seen in a few scenes and leaves a mark. It is quite evident from the trailer that language is not a barrier for him.

Dhanush took to the micro-blogging site Twitter to share the trailer. He tweeted, “GET RAJINIFIED … thalaivar rage .. the unstoppable phenomenon continues his style, charisma and Pure MAGIC .. here we go .. #petta trailer.”

The movie also features Vijay Sethupathi, Trisha, Sasi Kumar, Bobby Simha and Simran in crucial roles. The major parts of the film have been shot in Darjeeling and Dehradun. The project is bankrolled by Sun Pictures and is all set to hit the screens on January 10, 2019.

Earlier, 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 1990s. Karthik has extracted from me the kind of work I used to perform three to four decades ago.”

On a related note, Rajini was last seen with Akshay Kumar in 2.0. The mega-budget film performed well at the box office. It was the sequel to 2010 film Enthiran. Nawazuddin is gearing up for the release of his upcoming film Thackeray. The movie is all set to hit the screens on January 25.
