Meanwhile the trailer of both the films Petta and Viswasam had created a huge controversy among fans of both superstars. The Petta trailer ends with Rajinikanth warning his detractors and enemies (in the film) to run away. Viswasam’s trailer ends with Ajith calling himself a family man and ready for a showdown with his enemies over it. Meme creators in Tamil Nadu are having a field day, thus increasing the expectation meter for both films.
