Petta is directed by Karthik Subbaraj and the film also stars Simran, Trisha Krishnan, Vijay Sethupathi and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in pivotal roles.
Petta marks the first collaboration of Rajinikanth and Karthik Subbaraj. At 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,” reported news agency IANS.
Petta is slated to release during Pongal.
