Superstar Rajinikanth is essaying a cameo in his daughter, Aishhwarya Rajinikanth’s film, Lal Salaam. The teaser of the film was released on Diwali and started to trend on social media.
In the teaser, we see two teams playing cricket – Vishnu Vishal, a Hindu, is in one team as a batsman and Vikranth, a Muslim, is a bowler in the other. A cricket match between their two teams is set to begin and you hear on a loudspeaker – “You’ve seen an India-Pakistan match on TV, have you seen it in real life?” The cricket match eventually leads to riots and we see how politics plays a role in this.
And then Superstar Rajinikanth, who plays Moideen Bhai in this film, appears on screen and says a very powerful dialogue. “You’ve melded religion with sports. And you’ve poisoned the minds of children. This is not right,” he states.
Given that Rajinikanth’s Jailer was a superhit, his fans are looking forward to this film in January. Superstar took to his social media to wish everyone a Happy Diwali and launched the Lal Salaam teaser on Sunday. Fans wrote on Thalaivaa’s profile that they were waiting to catch the film in theatres.
Lal Salaam is Aishwarya Rajinikanth’s third feature film directorial and the movie will release for Sankranti i.e. January 2024. She is donning the director’s hat after eight years.
Lal Salaam stars Vishnu Vishal, Vikranth, Thambi Ramaiah and Rajinikanth, in an extended cameo. Cricketer Kapil Dev makes an appearance as himself in the film. The music is by AR Rahman and the movie is produced by Lyca Productions, who produced Rajinikanth’s Darbar.
