The Oscar-winning sound technician refuted rumours that he is doing a film with Southern superstar Rajinikanth
“It’s all rubbish news. I don’t understand where this news came from. I am glad now I got an opportunity to clear these rumours. This news has made my life hell. I am not doing any film with Rajini sir,” Pookutty said.
“Yes, it is true that I went to Chennai to meet his daughter Soundarya to talk about sound designing of Kochadaiyaan and nothing more than that,” he added.
Pookutty won the Academy Award for the Best Sound Mixing for Slumdog Millionaire, and now he plans to turn into a director soon, and has discussed his script with Amitabh Bachchan.
“I have met Amitabh Bachchan and have given my script to him. Nothing is concrete right now. I can’t talk about it right now. As soon as I get any response from him, I will be the first person to talk to the media,” he said.
