Along with Rajinikanth, the film also has four heroines as part of the cast. Veterans Meena and Khushbu were the first to join the team. Later, Keerthy Suresh’s name got announced. Nayanthara was the most recent to join the team. She is playing a lawyer’s role in the film. While it is still not known who plays Rajinikanth’s pair, we hear that all four of them will have strong characters to play.
‘Annatthe’ is expected to be an out and out entertainer on the lines of director Siva’s last film, ‘Viswasam’, which was a huge blockbuster. Even the technical team of ‘Viswasam’ comprising of DOP Vetri, music director Imman and editor Ruben have been retained as such. Actors like Prakash Raj, Soori and Sathish are also part of the supporting cast.
