Rajnikanth’s ‘Kochadaiyaan’ seems to be the answer to Hollywood’s ‘Avatar’ and ‘Tin Tin.’ Shooting for the 3D movie has been wrapped upand post production work, including special effects, is set to begin soon.

Director Soundarya R. Ashwin was elated after her father, Rajnikanth, watched the edited version of the film and appreciated it.

Soundarya tweeted: “One of the most important days of my life. Kochadaiyaan locked. Appa and Ravikumar uncle watched the film and are thrilled.”

Director K.S. Ravikumar, who has written the story, screenplay and dialogues of the film, said, “The film is thrilling, big in canvas and much larger in grandeur than I anticipated.”

According to the team, ‘Kochadaiyaan’ is a unique concept that immortalises Rajnikanth.

The shooting of ‘Kochadaiyaan’ began in March last year at the Pinewood Studios in London where Hollywood films such as the James Bond and Harry Potter series have been shot.

Besides Rajnikanth, the cast includes Deepika Padukone, R. Sarath Kumar, Nasser, Jackie Shroff, Aadhi and Shobana. A.R. Rahman has scored the music with costumes designed by Neeta Lulla and sound design by Resul Pookutty.

‘Kochadaiyaan’ will be released in Tamil, Telegu, Hindi and English. Watch this space for more on the movie.
