Rajinikanth starrer 'Kochadaiiyaan' trailer launched

New Delhi, Sept 9, 2013 (PTI):

The first trailer of the highly anticipated Tamil period film "Kochadaiiyaan", which marks the onscreen return of superstar Rajinikanth after a gap of three years, has been unveiled today.

Rajinikanth's last release was "Enthiran" in 2010. The actor was supposed to begin work on "Rana" but he fell sick in May 2011 and it was shelved.

Later, it was decided that Rajinikanth will star in "Kochadaiyaan" which marks the directorial debut of the 62-year-old actor's daughter Soundarya R Ashwin.

The film narrates the story of 8th century Pandiya King, Kochadaiyaan Ranadhiran.
The trailer begins with the words- 'There are heroes, there can be superheroes but there is only one...' followed by the grand entry of Rajinikanth in a warrior avatar.

'Kochadaiiyaan' is touted to be India's first motion capture technology (MOCAP) film being made along the lines of Hollywood films like "Avatar", "Polar Express" and "Tin Tin".
Deepika Padukone, who is the leading lady of the film, is missing from the first trailer but Soundarya said the actress will feature prominently in the second teaser.

"The beautiful princess Vadhana Devi (Deepika's character)... Next teaser just to reveal your stunning looks," Soundarya posted on twitter.

The music has been composed by Oscar winner AR Rahman and will be launched in October. Rajinikanth has also lent his voice in one of the songs.

"Kochadaiiyaan" will be dubbed and simultaneously released in Telugu (as "Vikrama Simha"), Malayalam, English and Hindi. The film will hit theatres on Rajinikanth's birthday on December 12.
