After Aishwarya Rai the only actress to get to work with India’s biggest star Rajnikanth is Deepika Padukone. While Ash had to wait for decades before getting such an opportunity, Deepika was lucky enough to walk into this project titled Kochadaiyaan starring Rajnikanth. The film is directed by Rajni Sir’s daughter Soundarya.
The film Kochadaiyaan is about a prince who grows up with the sole purpose of avenging the death of his father Kochadaiyaan who died trying to save his kingdom. The son falls in love with the daughter of the bad king and what happens when they decide to get married is what the story is all about.
The film will remind you of those fairy tales you heard as a kid. A king, kingdom, prince, princess, evil raja, soldiers etc will make you wonder for a moment if this is some children’s film you’re watching. The story is good and well, even if it isn’t, the very fact that Rajni Sir is the star is enough to set the screen on fire.
Deepika Padukone plays his love interest in the film. Apparently, she didn’t find the need to even go through the script before giving it a thumbs up. An ecstatic Deepika couldn’t wait to meet Ranjikanth and romance him on screen.
After Robot which had a lot of graphics and action, Kochadaiyaan is a 3D animated film that will be released in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, English, Russian, Japanese and Chinese. The film stars a number of other veteran actors including Bollywood actor Jackie Shroff.
Aishwarya Rai’s clear competitor Deepika Padukone seems to be tasting heights of success after this stint. Now we know who really rules the industry.
