Rajini is back in Chennai done with his quickie Hong Kong schedule. His Kochadaiyaan has an equally impressive ensemble cast including Bollywood hero Jackie Shroff playing the villain, Bharathnatyam exponents Rukmini Vijaykumar and Shobhana, Sharath Kumar and the very talented Nasser on board for the big one. News is that Rukimi has completed her dance sequences, shooting at one of Hong Kong’s state of the art studios.
“It has been a very different experience for me. Meeting Rajini sir for the first time was indeed special. The use of motion capture technology for Kochadaiyaan was so new and exciting”, says the Bommalattam and Aananda Thaandavam actress. She adds, “The best thing about him is his humility. Being the Superstar he is, he never has that haughty air about himself .Infact he talked to everyone of us at the sets and I really enjoyed my time.” Rajini caught a Cathay Pacific flight back to Chennai, in the wee hours of Thursday. He had enough security around him to keep the crowd under control. Bollywood actor Jackie Shroff had arrived for the Hong Kong shoots with his son Tiger .Jackie who plays the antagonist wanted his son to observe things closely, as he too is planning to enter filmdom soon. “Rajini shot a total 4 days and the energy was unbelievable at the Kochadaiyaan sets. The rest of the cast and crew will be heading back home soon”, confirmed our source. The Kochadaiyaan audio launch is slated for the month of June, with the film packed up by daughter/director Soundarya as a September release.
