Before that, Aishwaryaa Rajinikanth also shared photos from Lal Salaam's wrap-up schedule and Vishnu Vishal's birthday. She wrote, “18 working hours straight…2 cakes …2 things to celebrate 2 am 2nd schedule wrap! Pre-birthday for the birthday boy Vishnu Vishal and wrap up at 2 am with sleepy smiles! #thankful #grateful #lalsalaam.”
Lal Salaam marks Aishwaryaa Rajinikanth's comeback after half a decade. The Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman has scored music for the film.
Meanwhile, Rajinikanth made his blockbuster comeback with Jailer. The film was released on August 10 and also featured Ramya Krishnan, Mohanlal and Jackie Shroff.
Film critic Saibal Chatterjee has 2.5 stars to Jailer. In his review for NDTV, he said, “? The first half of Jailer is engaging for the most part. Its second half isn't half as riveting. In fact, it is sluggish and all over the place notwithstanding a couple of climactic twists that pack a reasonable punch. In one scene in the second half, Muthu confronts a film director named Balu and exhorts him not to foist garbage on the audience in the name of commercial cinema. Give them clean family entertainment, he suggests."
