The long-awaited Rajinikanth starrer Kochadaiyaan, his first release in 3 years following his illness and slow recovery, has finally found a release date. The long-anticipated spectacle is all set to be released on 12 December, the day Rajinikanth turns 63.
We've heard a lot of false release dates for Kochadaiyaan for the last one and a half years. But now finally the film's co-producer Dr. Murli Manohar confirms, "We are aiming at a 12 December, 2013 release for the film, finally. It's been a long struggle. But we wanted Rajiniji's fans to get the most perfect film after a 3-year wait. I think we've achieved what we set out to do."
The film's music by A R Rahman will be released in October.
It looks like Deepika Padukone who plays Rajinikanth's female lead in Kochadaiyaan would have 4 back-to-back blockbusters in 2013. While Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Chennai Express have already smashed box-office records, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Ram Leela and Kochadaiyaan which Rajinikanth's daughter Soundarya directs would consolidate Deepika's position as the no.1 Bollywood diva.
Interestingly, this special-effects laden action film Kochadaiyaan comes just a week ahead of Yash Raj's Dhoom 3 which releases on 20 December.
