"It's a daughter's gift to her father" - that's how Soundarya, daughter of Tamil superstar Rajnikant, describes her full-length animation film Sultan: The Warrior to be released in November this year.
Addressing mediapersons after a special screening of the second trailer of the much-awaited film, Soundarya sounded thrilled over producing the first-ever animation film made around an Indian actor.
She also confessed that her Appa (father) was initially very hesitant to play the role. She was happy, however, that he agreed after "all his apprehension were allayed".
Except Rajnikant, all the characters would be animated. The superstar would have his jodi (female opposite). Further details about the movie, however, are strictly under wraps.
The film, being made at a cost of $10 million by Adlabs, along with Soundarya's own Ocher Studio, will be released in 12 languages, including Tamil, Telugu, Hindi and English.
Soundarya said that the film is a "collective effort of 80 of us from the Ocher Studio".
The second trailer showed Rajnikant fighting the villains in his familiar style.
AR Rahman scores the music for the film, which will have four songs. One of these will be in English, and the search is on for a Western singer.
