Rajinikanth is back and how! The veteran superstar has released the first look of his next film ‘Annaatthe’ on the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi with all his fans.
Rajinikanth's announcement came after he had a meeting with office-bearers of the RMM after his return from the US where he had gone for a complete medical check-up.
RMM was previously considered a launch vehicle for the actor's political entry. However, last December the actor said he would not join politics and had cited factors like his health condition, him undergoing kidney transplant in 2016.
