Rajinikanth and Deepika Padukone’s Kochadaiiyaan delayed again, to release on May 23 – Read full statement!

The Southern megastar’s much-awaited film co-starring Ms Padukone will now release on May 23 instead of this Friday (May 9)

As reported by BollywoodLife earlier, Rajinikanth and Deepika Padukone’s upcoming film Kochadaiiyaan has been delayed again. We were the first to tell you about the delay in release of Soundarya Rajinikanth Ashwin’s directorial debut, which will now hit the theatres on May 23 instead of May 9.

The makers (Eros International) have confirmed this development in a statement. “Eros International Media Ltd will release the eagerly awaited futuristic fantasy event of the year Kochadaiiyaan – The Legend, worldwide in cinemas on May 23, 2014, two weeks after its previously announced date of May 9, 2014 to cater to the demand for multiple language and the 2D and 3D versions to release the same day,” read the statement.

For those of you who don’t know, this ain’t the first time when the makers of Rajinikanth’s much awaited film have changed the release date. Kochadaiiyaan was initially going to release last year around September, then the film was slated to hit the screens on April 11 this year alongside Amitabh Bachchan’s Bhoothnath Returns. But that didn’t happen and the movie was pushed forward to May 9.

Anyway, with Kochadaiiyaan now being pushed forward to May 23, all we can do is just continue to wait for a bit longer.
