Lal Salaam Release Date
Lyca Productions, the production company behind the film, unveiled a poster for Lal Salaam on their official social media account. The poster features a bamboo structure typically seen at cricket matches, with the title “Lal Salaam” and the release date “9 Feb” prominently displayed.
The caption read, “Namma THER THIRUVIZHA’ku Alappara kelappa neram vandhachu! (It’s time to listen to our Chariot Festival) LAL SALAAM hits the big screen on February 9th 2024! Save the date!”
On Rajinikanth’s 73rd birthday, a glimpse of his character in Lal Salaam, where he plays the role of Moideen Bhai in an extended cameo, was out. The teaser showcased Rajinikanth’s impactful entry, where he confronts and beats goons while moving forward in slow motion. The clip also featured the track “Jalaali Jalaal,” sung and composed by AR Rahman.
The first official teaser of the sports action drama was released on November 12. The teaser opens with a tense cricket match where the commentator declares it to be more than just a game, but a war. Directed by Aishwarya Rajinikanth, Lal Salaam marks her return to filmmaking after a seven-year hiatus. The film is rumored to be set against the backdrop of cricket and communism, featuring Vishnu Vishal and Vikrant in lead roles. Aishwarya’s last directorial venture was the Tamil action-thriller Vai Raja Vai, which included a cameo by Dhanush.
Recently, Rajinikanth received an invitation to attend the inauguration ceremony of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya, scheduled for January 22.
