Lyca Productions took to Twitter to unveil the first look poster. It went with the caption: “Everyone’s favourite BHAI is back in Mumbai. Make way for #Thalaivar Superstar #Rajinikanth as #MoideenBhai in #LalSalaam (sic).”
In the comment section, some said that they weren’t happy with the poster and that the quality is substandard. One user wrote in Tamil: “Who is the designer? What kind of work is this? (sic).” Another user wrote in Tamil: “They could’ve just created a poster with Thalaivar’s airport look. This edit is not up to the mark. What is this? (sic).”
With Lal Salaam, Aishwarya returns to direction after a gap of seven years. Aishwarya’s last directorial project was Tamil action-thriller Vai Raja Vai, which also starred Dhanush in a cameo.
Lal Salaam is rumoured to be set against the backdrop of cricket and communism. It stars Vishnu Vishal and Vikrant in lead roles. Rajinikanth's portion will be entirely shot in Mumbai.
The film was launched with a pooja ceremony last year on November 5. Sharing pictures from the event, Aishwarya wrote on her Twitter page: “When your FATHER trusts in you.. When you believe GOD is by you. MIRACLES happen in true. After 7 long years. The journey begins again with grateful and joyful tears (sic).”
Rajinikanth will be seen playing an extended cameo in Lal Salaam. It went on floors earlier this year and the team has already completed filming a schedule. The movie has music by AR Rahman. Before commencing work on the project, he visited the Kadapa dargah where he was joined by Rajinikanth.
