"This film is very different compared to my previous films. My 'Robo' is a science fiction film, Baba is a devotional film and Chandramukhi is a horror film. Of course a devotional film didn't run well and a ghost film like 'Chandramukhi' has done wonders. I didn't know that this film takes this much time because I don't show much interest in technology," Indiaglitz quoted Rajinikanth at the event.
"Kamal Haasan is the biggest actor and he shows so much interest in technology because he entered the industry to become a director. He has to do a film like this but I've done it. It is all God's magic," the superstar added.
"Kochadaiiyaan" aka "Vikramasimha" marks the directorial debut of Soundarya Rajinikanth. The film has the superstar appearing in dual roles, whereas Deepika Padukone, Aadhi, Nassar, Sarathkumar and Shobana appear in pivotal roles. The film's music was composed by Oscar winner AR Rahman.
Rajamouli, Narayana Rao and Mohan Babu, while speaking at the launch event, appreciated Soundarya's efforts to use motion capture for the first time in India. They also wished the film all success at the box office.
The historic drama flick is all set to hit the screens worldwide on 9 May. The film will reportedly release in six different languages, including Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, Bhopuri, Punjabi and Marathi.
