With Tamil cinema super star Rajnikanth's latest blockbuster

Sivaji -- The Boss

still running to packed houses in some pockets outside south India, the producers of the film have decided to dub it in Hindi and are planning a post-Diwali release.



"

Sivaji -- The Boss

will be dubbed in Hindi as the response for the film in Delhi, Mumbai and other major cities outside South India has been overwhelming," said S C Babu, CEO of AVM Productions.



"Some portions of the film will be re-shot to cater to the Hindi-speaking audience and Rajnikanth will dedicate three to four days in shooting," Babu told PTI from Chennai.



Asked whether Rajnikanth will dub his voice in Hindi, Babu said "indications are that he is unlikely to do the dubbing." However, the length of the film will be reduced to two and half hours from the existing three-hour duration as most of the Bollywood films do not exceed the time limit of 150 minutes.



Even though some of Rajnikanth's films were screened outside Tamil Nadu earlier,

Sivaji -- The Boss

got a rousing response from people who thronged theatres in major cities such as Delhi and Mumbai.



"

Sivaji -- The Boss

has proved that language is not a barrier when it is Rajnikanth," Babu said. Swanand Kirkire is penning the dialogues for the dubbed version and is likely to finish his work by October. "But we are planning a post-Diwali release. We don't want to release a dubbed version during the festive season," he said.
