Earlier there were reports about the makers eying in to release the Rajinikanth starrer on the Diwali. But following lockdown, the shoot of Annaatthe has come to a stand still, which could also be one of the main reasons for makers opting to release the Rajinikanth starrer on Pongal next year.
The Rajinikanth starrer also has Keerthy Suresh, Nayanthara, Meena, Khushbu, and Prakash Raj in key roles. Annaatthe is helmed by filmmaker Siruthai Siva whose last directorial Viswasam with Thala Ajith that released on Pongal in 2019 was a humungous hit.
It is for the first time in their career where the actor-director of Rajinikanth and Siruthai Siva are teaming up for a project.
