Rajinikanth & Kamal Haasan Mourn Demise Of Srikanth

Jayalalithaa’s first hero and veteran actor, Srikanth, passed away in Chennai on Tuesday. He was 82. While the entire film fraternity are in a shock, superstar Rajinikanth and Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan have mourned the actor’s demise.

Srikanth was the first antagonist for Rajinikanth who became a full-fledged hero with ‘Bhairavi’. Superstar Rajinikanth remembered his good friend and yesteryear actor Srikanth, who breathed his last on Tuesday due to age-related ailments and posted in Tamil, which translates to, “I’m deeply saddened by the demise of my dear friend Srikanth. May his soul rest in peace”, tweeted Rajinikanth.

Meanwhile, Kamal Haasan also posted in Tamil which translates to, “An all-round performer as the protagonist, villain and character, Srikanth was an avid literary reader and a close friend of Jayakanthan. He stopped his movements today. We will send you on our way with a heavy heart.”

Srikanth debuted with Jayalalithaa in Vennira Aadai (1965) and went on to do memorable roles in a series of K Balachander classics like Bama Vijayam, Poova Thalaiya and Ethir Neechal, besides comedies like Kasethan Kadavulada.

Rajinikanth Expresses His Emotion On SP Balasubrahmanyam’s Song In ‘Annaatthe’

The much-awaited first single from superstar Rajinikanth’s ‘Annaatthe’ has arrived. The song titled ‘Annaatthe Annaatthe’ carries a special connection with the audience as it’s the last song of late singer SP Balasubrahmanyam for Rajinikanth. Accordingly, this D Imman’s musical has received good responses, and fans are turning emotional remembering SPB. Not just the fans but Rajinikanth too expressed his emotions on this SP Balasubrahmanyam’s song in ‘Annaatthe’, and said that his love for the late singer will live on through his sweet voice forever.

Rajinikanth took to his Twitter handle and expressed, “I never dreamed that this would be the last song he would sing for me during the filming of the song that SPB, who has been my voice for 45 years, sang for me in the movie ‘Annaatthe’. My love SPB will live on through his sweet voice forever.”

SP Balasubrahmanyam had sung several introduction songs for Rajinikanth in his films, and the combo always rocked the theatres with their magic. Now, the ‘Annaatthe’ song is also expected to repeat the same magic, as the song has been doing well on musical platforms.

Rajinikanth’s ‘Annaatthe’ is slated to release this Diwali, and the makers are set to entertain the fans with back-to-back updates because it’s less than a month for the film to release.

Will Rajinikanth’s ‘Annaatthe’ Step Back From The Diwali Race?

Rajinikanth’s ‘Annaatthe’ certainly will be a grand feat for the fans, and the superstar will be seen portraying a rural character after ages. The film, which was planned to release during Diwali 2020, was delayed due to the Corona pandemic, and the makers altered the plan to release it this year. Now, with just one month and a week left for the release date, the makers haven’t kickstarted any promotional strategies for the massive film, since Rajinikanth’s film gets a huge reception worldwide, and his box office numbers are unmatchable. So, with the calmness around, it has raised the speculation within the fans that the film might move out from the Diwali race as many other big films have planned their release during Diwali.

Earlier, while talking to a news portal, ‘Annaatthe’ composer, D Imman had said, ” We have time till October mid-week to start the promotion works, and it will be a grand one once it is kick-started.” So the team still has time left, and they will be doing the censor for other countries in a short time.

‘Annaatthe’ first single, teaser, and trailer will be out soon, and it will be Rajinikanth mania on social media soon. ‘Annaatthe’ is produced by Sun Pictures, and the film has Nayanthara, Keerthy Suresh, Khushbu, Meena, Prakash Raj, Soori, Sathish, and several others.
