It has been a day of big announcements. After SS Rajamouli announced the release date of his highly awaited period drama movie, RRR (13 October 2021), later in the day, makers of superstar Rajinikanth's Annaatthe did the same by announcing the arrival date of the movie.
Annaatthe - an action drama film, that was supposed to hit cinemas on Pongal 2021, will now debut in theaters on November 4, 2021, on the occasion of Diwali.

Annaatthe is Rajinikanth's maiden collaboration with director Siva, who is known for making out-and-out commercial potboilers that are right up the Superstar's alley.
