Actor Rajnikanth’s 2007 hit Sivaji will be re-released in Tokyo, but now in 3D, claims actor Shriya Saran, who was cast opposite the actor in the film. “The film will hit Tokyo early this September. Rajinikanth will be there to promote it, and so will I,” says Shriya.
Talking about her favourite co-star’s popularity in the capital of Japan, the actor insists, “Rajinikanth is huge in Tokyo and people would love to see his film again, especially if it’s out in 3D.” According to Shriya, the film, directed by filmmaker S Shankar, will also have a grand premiere in the city.
Shriya believes that even though the film is five years old, its subject is contemporary and still relevant today. “It’s a love story woven around corruption, crime and is about a person who is trying to do something for the betterment of others,” she says.
The film will also have a theatrical release across India. “It’s been dubbed in Hindi and will hit theatres here later in September,” says Shriya.
