What is Kochadaiiyaan writer’s warning to Rajinikanth fans?

Kochadaiyaan should be viewed as animated film

As a word of caution for superstar Rajinikanth’s fans, director K S Ravikumar, who penned the story and dialogues of upcoming Tamil period-drama Kochadaiyaan, says it should only be viewed as an animated film to enjoy the experience.Kochadaiyaan directed by Soundarya, daughter of Rajinikanth, is touted to be India’s first motion capture photo-realistic 3D animated film.

“It’s very important that audience doesn’t walk in expecting to watch a typical Rajinikanth film. Of course, there’s Rajini in it, but in an animated form that is larger than life. His fans need to understand this before the walk in…only then will they enjoy the film,” Ravikumar told in an interview.

“Audience needs to understand it’s a first-of-its-kind attempt. Therefore, they need to see the film as an animated feature to enjoy it to the fullest. In fact, that’s why we want audiences to watch the film with their kids to enjoy the experience,” he said.

Ravikumar was to direct Rajinikanth in a film titled Rana, but the project was dropped after the southern megastar fell seriously ill a few years back. Kochadaiyaan was derived from Rana, says Ravikumar.

“When Rajini sir was hospitalised a few years back, we had shelved Rana. But I worked on another story which was more like a prequel to ‘Rana’, and that was Kochadaiyaan. When I narrated the story to him, he instantly agreed to do it,” he added.

Kochadaiyaan, slated to release April 11, also features Jackie Shroff, Deepika Padukone, Shobana, Aadi Pinisetty, R. Sarath Kumar and Rukmini in important roles.
