In what is good news for fans of Tamil megastar Rajinikanth, the first official picture of his new look in his next film Kochadaiyaan has been released.
Rajinikanth's daughter Soundarya Ashwin tweeted the picture and wrote: A still from Kochadaiyaan :)
Kochadaiyaan, the superstar's first film after his recovery from kidney ailment, has been made using performance capturing technology. The filming of the much-awaited film is over and the team led by his director-daughter Soundarya Ashwin is busy with post production work.
As evident from the picture, Rajinikanth is playing a double role in the film. One is reportedly of Kochadaiyaan, a loyal commander of an emperor while the other is his son Rana.
Widely hailed as India's first 3D performance capturing film, Kochadaiyaan also stars Deepika Padukone, Jackie Shroff, Shobhana, Aadi Pinisetty, R. Sarath Kumar and Nassar. AR Rehman has scored the music and film's music launch is likely to be around May. The film, which will be released simultaneously in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and English, is likely to hit the screens in July.
