Kochadaiyaan to be revealed

Kochadaiyaan is one of the most anticipated movies of the year. The film’s two schedules in London and Trivandrum has been successfully completed and the postproduction is in full swing. The buzz is that the teaser of the film is going to be released very soon.
Superstar Rajinikanth and Deepika Padukone shot for a dance number recently in which they both performed bharathanatyam, boasts the team. The film is scheduled to hit the screens only in September but the team is already done with most of the shooting parts. Looks like director Soundarya R Ashwin knows her job pretty well.


Rajinikanth is age conscious?

Rajnikanth, whom his fans believe can do the impossible, doesn’t want to do what is really possible by even an amateur in the industry- to romance a girl. Just imagine who wouldn’t want to romance a beauty like Deepika Padukone. Starting from the smallest star to the most powerful star would queue up to romance her, but not the Superstar.
If reports are to be believed, Rajinikanth had made a request to his daughter Soundarya, to keep the number of romance sequences to the minimum. It seems that he feels bad to romance a girl half of his age. The incident is said to have happened when Saroj Khan, the film’s choreographer had composed a dance sequence that involved moves very rich in romance.  rajinikanth-shatrughan-sinha-08-05-12
Initially, when he was planning to do Rana, he had objected to bring in Sonakshi Sinha as the film’s heroine as he felt it wouldn’t be nice to romance the daughter of his very good friend Shatrughan Sinha.
