The confusion around the release of Ajith Kumar's Viswasam has been clarified with the release of a new poster on Thursday, October 25. Yes, the makers have launched the second look of Thala from the movie to send out a message to the industry and public that the flick will appear before the viewers as planned before, i.e., for Pongal 2019.
A stylish avatar of Ajith on a two-wheeler has been released at 10.30 am. He has clad red shirt and a dhoti, while sporting a helmet and a pair of glasses in the second look of Viswasam. It appears like a poster from a song and Thala's gesture indicates a victory.
The first look was revealed in August where the poster shows the actor in two looks – a salt-and-pepper look and a moustache and a beard avatar.
In the last couple of days, there have been rumours of Ajith's film being postponed due to Rajinikanth's Petta saying that Sun Pictures were aiming to release the movie for Pongal. To avoid the clash, the makers of Viswasam were delaying their release, the buzz had stated.
Ajith's new look has sent his fans into a tizzy, who have now showered positive words on the poster. Here, we bring you select few comments:
