Rajinikanth’s highly anticipated release ‘Kochadaiyaan’ launched it’s music at Satyam cinemas, Chennai. Earlier, Amitabh Bachchan was expected to be the chief guest at the event but now Shahrukh Khan is going to grace the event as the chief guest for the grand audio launch. This piece of news has been confirmed by the director of the movie Soundarya R Ashwin himself!
The Chennai crowd already got a taste of the songs from the movie at a listening session held in Chennai for a select group of people.The Rajinikanth starrer will be the first movie to be made in India with performance capturing technology. The movie besides seeing Rajinikanth in a dual role, it also features actors like Deepika Padukone, Sharath Kumar, Shobhana, Jackie Shroff in main roles. The movie was jointly produced by Eros international and Media One Global Entertainment.
Shahrukh in fact volunteered to be present at the big event and even offered to bring Deepika Padukone alongwith him.
Says a source, “Deepika is shooting with Shah Rukh for Happy New Year. It is at present impossible for her to fly down to Chennai or anywhere else. But Shah Rukh not only offered to fly down in a private jet he also agreed to take Deepika in the chartered flight.”
Confirming these occurrences, the film’s co-producer Dr Murli Manohar says, “The event went off spectacularly. All the roads leading to the event were blocked by Rajniji’s fans. Our leading lady Deepika Padukone flew down with Shah Rukh in a private jet for just a few hours. But it was not a jet sent by Rajinikanthji. Rajinji has never in his life travelled by a private jet. It was Shah Rukh who has arranged the jet for himself and Deepika. He wanted to be there for Rajiniji’s special moment.”
Apparently, Rajinikanth is deeply moved by Shahrukh’s gesture. Also, ten minutes of the film Kochadaiyaan was screened for the press.
Explains Dr Murli, “There were many misconceptions about the ‘3D Motion Capture Technique’ that Kochadaiyaan has used. It is not animation film. We wanted to show the world the difference between a cartoon film and 3D Motion Capture. We wanted to dispel the notion.”
