Rajinikanth’s fans pray for ‘Kochadaiiyaan’ success at Tirupati

Superstar Rajinikanth’s fans will be heading to Tirupati to pray for the magnum opus ‘Kochdaiiyaan’ success slated to release on April 11th. N. Ravi, treasurer of Nellore`s Rajinikanth`s fan club, will lead the walkathon to the holy place.

"Hundreds of Rajnikanth`s fan club will leave for Tirupathi April 2. We will pray for the success of his film `Kochadaiiyaan`, which is releasing after two years. We will also pray for his health and that he continues doing more films," Ravi said.

‘Kochadaiiyaan’ directed by Rainikanth’s daughter Soundarya Rajnikanth Ashwin is touted to be India`s first photo-realistic 3D animated film.

The film will be released in six languages and it features Deepika Padukone, Jackie Shroff, R. Sarath Kumar, Nasser and Aadi Pinisetty in important roles. The film’s music is done by AR Rahman.

At the audio launch event of the Rs 125-crore film at Sathyam Cinemas, Rajinikanth was quoted by a daily saying the film was a return gift to the Tamil audience. “I like stories that are about kings and queens and used to read stories that began with Once Upon A Time…”

“I haven’t done a film based on folklore and that’s why I wanted to do Rana but I fell ill. When I heard this story, I liked it more than Rana and as motion capture was used, I did not have to push myself,” he said.

He also recalled how during the making of the film, he had laughed when he heard his daughter and director Soundarya shout ‘action’. “I then had to ask (director KS) Ravikumar to say ‘action’”, he added.

The audience will get to see Rajinikanth in never seen before avatar. It is a high technique 3D movie and Rajinikanth will be seen in mythological character romancing the long legged actress Deepika.

Directed by his younger daughter Soundarya R Ashwin, the film rides high on style, action, technique. It excels in every department of film making. Rajinikanth’s character will be seen doing some high octane action scene and also doing some intense dance number, similar to the line of tandav. The trailer shows Rajinikanth dancing around Deepika Padukone is some mind blowing locations. Deepika plays the character of princess Vandana who is awe of brave heart Rajinikanth.

Rajinikanth as the archetypal superhero will be seen fighting good against the evil. The superstar plays a double role and Deepika will be seen romancing younger Rajinikanth. ‘Kochanidaiiyaan’ will be released in six languages.
