'Thalapathy' Vijay's fans are prepping for the big day ahead as the much-awaited Varisu audio launch will be taking place from 4 p.m. at the Jawaharlal Nehru Indoor Stadium in Chennai on Saturday, December 24 amidst massive hype and excitement. The upcoming film is scheduled to open in cinemas worldwide as a grand Pongal treat in January 2023 and all pre-release works are progressing at a brisk pace for the family entertainer directed by Vamshi Paidipally of Thozha and Maharshi fame under Dil Raju's Sri Venkateswara Creations banner. With the wait for fans to witness Vijay at his first big public appearance in two years later this weekend, the makers of Varisu surprised fans late Thursday evening after 10 p.m. by releasing a new audio launch poster. 

This new Varisu audio launch poster gives us a completely new glimpse at Vijay, who's seen pondering over something and looking as young as ever, with many fans on social media comparing his appearance to his 2005 blockbuster, Sachein. The superstar is seen casually sitting on his superbike in a grey crew neck shirt and black cargo pants, with the poster carrying the announcement of the audio launch taking place on December 24. This latest surprise from the Varisu team has left fans delighted and once again shows the stunning following he enjoys in Tamil cinema. Check out the new Varisu audio launch announcement poster below:

Varisu will see Vijay paired with the 'National Crush' Rashmika Mandanna for the first time and their big-screen rapport is undoubtedly one of the biggest highlights of the film. Likewise, blockbuster composer Thaman. S has composed the songs and the background score for Tamil cinema's leading superstar's venture for the first time and the three tracks released so far - 'Ranjithame', 'Thee Thalapathy' and 'Soul of Varisu' - have turned out to be chart-topping hits, with the rest of the album, which will also include a big surprise number, also set to be released at the audio launch. The Varisu audio launch will be the first time that Vijay will be appearing in front of thousands of his ardent fans after the Master audio launch and the demand for tickets for the gala event has been nothing short of huge.
