Although Karthik Subbaraj's films have earned wide critical acclaim, his recent movies have not done well at the box-office.

Both Rajinikanth and Simran look so much younger in this poster. Although the dates of the film are not yet released, Karthik has confirmed that the film will release during Pongal in January.

Even before 2.0's grand release, Superstar has already completed the shooting of his next film Petta. The film is a first time collaboration for most actors. And today, the makers of Rajinikanth's Petta have made the same festival presence official.

"Here it is.... #Petta new poster featuring gorgeous Simran madam and Ever charming n Ever Stylishhh Thalaivaaaaa...(sic)", tweeted Petta director Karthik Subbaraj.

Serena Williams And Virgil Abloh Spark Controversy Over GQ Cover
Abloh's designs typically feature quote marks, including on some of the Nike apparel he has worked on for Williams. If anyone's deserving of GQ's Woman of the Year honor, it's 23-time Grand Slam tennis champion Serena Williams .

Apart from Ajith's film, there is a Simbu movie (remake of Atharintiki Daredi) also planning a Pongal release. Also starring Nayanthara as the female lead and Telugu actor Jagapati Babu in an undisclosed role, the film also includes Vivek, Kovai Sarala, Yogi Babu, Robo Shankar, Thambi Ramaiah, Ramesh Thilak, Bose Venkat among others with music by D. Imman.

The post-production work of the movie is in full swing. Petta, besides Rajinikanth, also stars Simran, Trisha Krishnan and Vijay Sethupathi in key roles.

Petta was wrapped up last month, 15 days ahead of its schedule.
