The actor, who's a God for millions of his fans, will now portray a character based on Lord Krishna in his daughter Soundarya's forthcoming production.
A leading daily reports that Soundarya has changed the name of her forthcoming production, the ambitious 3D film initially titled Sultan - The Warrior, to Hara.
Considering Rajini's fan following has already given him a status of demi-god, the move doesn't come as a surprise.
Rajinikanth play the role of an armour-clad hero who saves the world from dire straits. The film that is slated for release in 12 languages is a period film on the lines of Troy.
It is said that Rajini mannerisms will also be added to the character.
