Southern actor Anushka Shetty is as busy in Tamil films as she is in Telugu. The buzz is that she may team up with superstar Rajinikanth in his upcoming 3D film Kochadaiyyan.
Kochadaiyyan 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 Tin Tin were made with the same technology.
If Anushka signs on the dotted line, she will be doing her part in a sophisticated studio equipped with cameras that will capture her body language and later transfer them to animation.
Though there are no confirmed reports from those involved in the project, the team might soon come out with an official confirmation, says sources.
The project is the directorial debut of Rajinikanth's daughter, Soundarya, while KS Ravikumar, who has written the story, screenplay and dialogue, will be the directorial supervisor for Kochadaiyyan.
For the time being, Anushka is busy with director Vijay's Tamil action movie Thaandavam, which will see her sharing screen space with Vikram. She is also doing a film with director Suraj and in this Karthi is her co-star. They are shooting for the film in Kerala right now.
