The decision to unveil the trailer of Rajinikanth-starrer Kochadaiyaan at Cannes was called off at the last minute
As the team of Kochadaiyaan is still working on the final output of the trailer, the film couldn’t make it to the 66th Cannes International Film Festival. ” The trailer is shaping out well. I’m working on more surprises. All efforts are going in to release it as soon as possible,” posted the film’s director Soundarya Ashwin on her Twitter page. A source from the film’s unit revealed, ” We were all set to go to the festival, but our director was not happy with the final output of the trailer. She didn’t want an unsatisfactory promo to be released at the festival and, therefore, opted out of it.” Rajinikanth, who was supposed to attend the festival to promote his film also cancelled his plans.
Kochadaiyaan is touted to be India’s first motion-capture feature film made along the lines of Hollywood films like Tin Tin and Avatar. It also features Deepika Padukone, Aadi Pinisetty, R Sarath Kumar, Jackie Shroff and Shobana in important roles. The music is by Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman.
The film is being jointly produced by Eros International and Media One Global Entertainment.
