Rajinikanth is back in action and how! Sporting a muscular look, the actor flaunts his abs in the first look poster of his upcoming film Kochadaiyaan.
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 Tin Tin were made with the same technology. But Rajini fans would also see the cine-icon performing his own stunts in the movie.
"Rajniji is fine now and in perfect physical condition. He will be performing a lot of his own stunts now but the performance-capturing technique will also be used," Producer Murli Manohar had shared with Mid Day.
Rajinikanth's daughter Soundarya will direct the film who announced it on Twitter some time back. "THE ANNOUNCEMENT- Appa's next, Kochadaiyaan. Thrilled, Grateful n excited to be directing my father, THE RAJINIKANTH (thaliavaaaaaaaaa)," Soundarya had tweeted.
The story, screenplay and dialogue of the film is written by KS Ravikumar.
The film is being co-produced by Eros International and Mediaone Global Entertainment Limited. It is scheduled for release in August 2012.
Look who's doing cameo for Rajini
Bollywood actor Jackie Shroff will made a cameo appearance in Kochadaiyaan. "Rajiniji's daughter Soundarya is directing the film with her dad in the lead. So sweet! She asked me to make a cameo appearance in the film with her father. I immediately flew down to Chennai. When it comes to anything to do with Rajinikanth, one doesn't ask questions. One just does the needful," said Jackie.
