Wow, epic action sequences along with Rajinikanth is quite the combination. The movie’s release reportedly has been postponed from Summer to a 2017 Diwali release. There were reports that this movie might clash with Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal Again, but nothing of this sort has been confirmed so far. Now we are dying to know what the first look will comprise.
