Sri Lankan news reader Losliya Mariyanesan became a sensation across Tamil Nadu after her appearance on Bigg Boss Tamil season 3 in 2019 and has since gone on to land a number of film roles. Among her upcoming films, she will be making her first big screen appearance in the romantic sports comedy, Friendship, which also has Indian cricketing legend Harbhajan Singh in the lead role. Directed by John Paul Raj and Sham Surya under the joint production of Seantoaa Films in association with Cinemass Studio, an official statement was earlier put out informing fans that the film would be coming out first in theatres in September and not on any OTT platform. In that light, the makers on Saturday dropped the much-awaited announcement that Friendship is hitting theatres on September 17, with fans sending in their wishes to the team. 

Releasing a new poster featuring Losliya and Harbhajan Singh along with 'Action King' Arjun and comedian Sathish, who have been cast in pivotal roles, Friendship has been censored with a 'U/A' certificate and has plenty of hype surrounding it considering a teaser released sometime back showcased the film to be high on action, fun and sentiment - all typical elements for a commercial potboiler. Featuring music by DM Udhayakumar, there have been three tracks released from Friendship - 'Superstar Anthem' sung by Silambarasan TR, 'Friendship Gaana' crooned by Gana Achu and 'Adichu Parakkaviduma' with vocals by composer 'Thennisai Thendral' Deva, with all sights now set on the makers to come out with a new teaser or trailer in the days ahead as the film nears its release date.
