As Rajinikanth’s action thriller film Petta hits the screen, #PettaFDFS is trending on the social media for the obvious reasons. The die-hard Rajini fans are reeling over how fantastic the film is. It seems like after the success of 2.0, Rajinikanth is going to have another superhit film in his kitty, thanks to Petta. Directed by Karthik Subbaraj, the film has Vijay Sethupathi, Trisha, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Simran and Bobby Simha in the important roles. The trailer gave us a gist of Rajinikanth’s character in the film who turns from a family man to a revenge-seeking man wielding punches at his nemesis. Interestingly, director Subbaraj himself is a big Rajinikanth fan and he makes no bones talking about it. Recently, in an interview Subbaraj says he is proud to have directed Petta as he himself is a big time fan of the legend. The film also marks Subba’s first venture with the Thalaivar. The Hindi version of the film is yet to release on January 11 but the Tamil version is already rocking the theatres down in South. Subbaraj recalling his experience working with the biggest superstar of the industry, said, “Personally, the biggest takeaway for me from the project is the time I spent with Rajini sir. It was fascinating to see him in action. He still works with the kind of passion we see in up-and-coming actors who have to prove themselves. Importantly, Rajini sir doesn't take his fans and audiences for granted."
