Superstar Rajinikanth’s upcoming action drama Petta is one of the most exciting films on the marquee currently, more so because of the towering hype that the posters and the songs have created. The film brings together many celebrated names such as new-gen director Karthik Subbaraj, Vijay Sethupathi, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Simran, Trisha, composer Anirudh and many others.
The audio launch of the film which took place on Sunday was one of the biggest events of the year in the Tamil industry, with the entire team making their presence. Anirudh came out with an electrifying performance at the event, singing some potential chartbusters from the album.
The composer also made time to share his experiences of working in a Rajinikanth film for the first time, saying that it was his long-time wish. When the anchor asked him about the Superstar’s reactions to the album, he said “Just two days ago when I was mixing the album, I got to play the track Petta Paraak to Rajini sir. In his own style, he said ‘excellent, excellent, excellent’. For the next four hours, I worked with an energy that I never had previously in life.”
Petta will take a worldwide release for the Pongal festival, which falls in the second week of January.
