Sun Pictures has announced that the upcoming film Annaatthe that features superstar Rajinikanth will release on Pongal in January 2021. The Rajnikanth starrer Annaatthe is being directed by Siva and it will be the actor’s 11th film to release on Pongal. Sun Pictures made the announcement with a motion poster for the film released through Twitter.
Besides Rajinikanth, Annaatthe features Keerthy Suresh, Khushbu, Prakash Raj, Soori, Satish, and others. As per reports, actor Meena could also be a part of the cast. D Imman will give the music to the film. Vetri Palanisamy is helming the cinematography for the film. It will be edited by Ruben with Milan stepping in as the art director.
Annatthe is the first collaboration between director Siva and superstar Rajnikanth. He has previously worked with actor Ajith in four films since 2014. These are Veeram (2014), Vedalam (2015), Vivegam (2017), and Viswasam (2019). While most of their collaborations have been profitable at the box office, Vivegam did not impress the audiences.
The details of the project are not known as of yet. However, it is being predicted that the film might be set in a rural backdrop.
The Tamil Nadu government permitted the Tamil film industry to resume post-production work on their projects that were suspended due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Rajinikanth’s previous film Darbar failed to perform well at the box office. It was highly anticipated as he was collaborating with director AR Murugadoss. The superstar last Pongal release was Petta in 2019 which was directed by Karthik Subbaraj. It was also produced by Sun Pictures.
