Rajinikanth’s Kochadaiyaan has another name now as the film will be called Vikramasimha in Telugu. The news is that the dubbing for the Telugu version of the movie has kicked off. The movie will be released in Malayalam, Hindi, English and Japanese as well. It can be assumed that the Japanese version has been included because of Rajinikanth’s strong fan base in Japan.
Kochadaiyaan is directed by Superstar Rajinikanth’s daughter Soundarya. R. Ashwin. The story has been written by director K.S Ravikumar and the music is composed by A.R Rahman. The shoot for Kochadaiyaan was completed early this year and it is in the post-production stage at the moment and is expected to hit the screens soon.
Older heroes romancing young nubile nymphets is the norm in south film industries. When Rajinikanth romanced Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Endhiran, it didn’t raise any eyebrows down south. Nor was there even a flutter when it was announced that the 26-year-old Deepika Padukone has been signed opposite the 62-year-old actor for Kochadaiyaan and Rana. However, the buzz is that Rajini isn’t very comfortable with this arrangement and expressed his reservations to his daughter and Kochadaiyaan director Soundarya.
K S Ravikumar has penned the story, screenplay and dialogues for Kochadaiyaan, besides taking care of direction. AR Rahman is scoring the music. Kochadaiyaan is being made on 3D, using performance capturing technology.
