The makers also unleashed the Lal Salaam video, starring none other than the legendary Superstar Rajinikanth, donning the formidable avatar of Moideen Bhai. The promotional clip is a visual feast, an exclusive showcase of the maverick star, where Rajinikanth effortlessly plunges into stunning action sequence, capturing the essence of Moideen Bhai's character.
