Aishwarya Rajinikanth’s ‘Lal Salaam’ Set to Enthrall Audiences in January

The anticipation surrounding Aishwarya Rajinikanth’s upcoming directorial venture, ‘Lal Salaam,’ has reached fever pitch as the makers unveiled a new poster along with the exciting news of its release date. This much-anticipated film, featuring a stellar cast including Vishnu Vishal and Vikranth in leading roles, and an extended cameo by none other than Rajinikanth himself, is poised to grace theaters during the festive season of Pongal in January 2024.

In a recent tweet, the film’s production team announced the grand release plans without divulging the exact date, stating, “Lal Salaam to hit screens on Pongal 2024.” The poster accompanying the announcement showcases Rajinikanth, who last graced the silver screen with the blockbuster ‘Jailer,’ standing near a vintage car against the backdrop of a cricket field. Fans have been quick to express their excitement, with one eager follower tweeting, “Will wait eagerly for this movie,” and another chiming in, “Only a few months to go now for another Rajinikanth blockbuster.”

The release of ‘Lal Salaam’ in January 2024 will undoubtedly add to the festive fervor of Pongal, as numerous Tamil films, including Sivakarthikeyan’s ‘Ayalaan,’ Sundar C’s ‘Aranmanai 4,’ Arun Vijay’s ‘Vanangaan,’ and Jayam Ravi’s ‘Siren,’ are all gearing up for release around the same period.

‘Lal Salaam,’ produced by Lyca Productions and presented by A Subaskaran, promises to be a multi-lingual treat, with releases planned in Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, Malayalam, and Kannada. The film, which revolves around themes of friendship and cricket, features Rajinikanth in the role of Moideen Bhai and former cricketer Kapil Dev appearing as himself. Musical maestro AR Rahman is composing the film’s music and background score, marking his first collaboration with Aishwarya, Vishnu Vishal, and Vikranth.

The journey of ‘Lal Salaam’ began with rumors of Aishwarya Rajinikanth directing a film starring Atharvaa in the lead role, with Rajinikanth making a cameo appearance. However, in November, Aishwarya officially announced her directorial project titled ‘Lal Salaam,’ starring Vishnu Vishal as a cricketer and Vikranth in a pivotal role.
The filming kicked off in March 2023 in Chennai, with a muhurat puja held in December 2022. The team wrapped up shooting by August, and Aishwarya shared glimpses from the film’s set on Instagram, expressing her gratitude to her father and the film’s cast, exclaiming, “Making a movie with you is a miracle, and you are pure magic appa (father)… Lal Salaam, Moideen Bhai… and it’s a wrap for THE SUPERSTAR.”

With the much-anticipated release of ‘Lal Salaam’ just a few months away, fans of Rajinikanth and cinephiles alike can hardly contain their excitement for what promises to be a blockbuster extravaganza in early 2024.
