The superstar, who arrived here Thursday after a brief stay in the United States, was addressing reporters at his residence.
"First, I express my new year and Pongal wishes to one and all. I came to know that the movie is liked by everyone. Very happy for that. The credits should go to Sun Pictures (film producer), Karthik Subbaraj (director) and his unit," Rajinikanth said.
The superstar said as an actor, his utmost priority is that his films should deliver on the expectations of his fans.
"My job is to make them happy. That is very important. I am happy that they are happy. As I said earlier, the credits should go to Karthik Subbaraj. He made sure that he got the best from me in every shot, every scene."
"Petta" hit screens worldwide amid much fanfare Thursday with two couples choosing the occasion to tie the knot.
Produced by Sun Pictures, the music is scored by Anirudh.
"Petta", roughly translating into one's local stronghold in Tamil, released along with Ajith Nayanthara-starrer "Viswasam".
