A Rajinikanth movie release is no less than a celebration. One that is set for Diwali is even more so. Even as theatres slowly recover from the losses caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the multiple lockdowns, the superstar has announced the festival release date for his film, Annaatthe.

The makers released a new motion poster along with the release date of the stylish action caper. The motion poster features Rajinikanth astride a Royal Enfield motorbike riding through an exploding car. The visual is preceded by the actor delivering a rhyming punchline.

While the helmet and earphones might feel urban, the actor's weapon of the aruval (sickle) acts as a sign of the traditional, rural aesthetic which runs as an undercurrent in Siva's film. 

This visual is followed by another of the actor striding angrily forward, eyes set on something that we cannot see.

Annaatthe is being described as a rural drama, with enough elements signalling a high-octane action entertainer. The film also stars Nayanthara, Jagapathi Babu, Prakash Raj, Kushboo Sundar, Meena and Keerthy Suresh.

Produced by Sun Pictures, the film is scheduled for a theatrical release around Diwali. The final date of release has not yet been confirmed.
