Rajini’s new look in Kochadaiyaan hits the web

Chennai, Feb 14 (): The second poster of the Rajinikanth’s film Kochadaiyaan has finally been released. Tamil superstar will return with Kochadaiyaan, which will be the directorial debut of his daughter Soundarya Ashwin.

The first look poster of the film saw Rajinikanth sporting a muscular look. Fans were excited with the still, which had the Superstar striking a tapas-like pose.

Now, Soundharya has released one more publicity still from the film, which has Rajini holding a fancy-looking bow. From these two stills, it looks like the Superstar’s fans have a real treat waiting for them with this action spectacle.

The shooting of the movie starts in March. Kochadaiyaan will be a hi-tech 3D film and will be the first with performance capturing technology to be produced in India. James Cameron’s mega hit Avatar and Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin were made with the same technology.

It’s been only a few days since the reported leading lady Katrina Kaif was replaced by Deepika Padukone. And now Sneha, who was roped in to play Rajinikanth’s sister in the film has been replaced by another Bangalore girl, Rukmini Vijayakumar, who made her Kollywood debut with Arjun Sarja’s Bommalattam.

Confirming the news, Rukmini says, “Yes, I am playing Rajini sir’s sister in the film. The director of the film, Soundarya Rajinikanth approached me with the offer a few days ago and I immediately agreed. I had no clue about Sneha being a part of the film earlier.”

Sarath Kumar is also roped in Kochadaiyaan. He has expressed happiness to be part of Superstar Rajinikanth’s forthcoming film ‘Kochadaiyaan’. “I feel honoured. Rajini sir is a great actor, who has a worldwide opening,” the actor-politician said.

KS Ravikumar has written the story, screenplay and dialogue. He will also be the directorial supervisor for Kochadaiyaan.

The film is being co-produced by Eros International and Mediaone Global Entertainment Limited. The work is progressing at a fast pace and is scheduled for release in August 2012.
