Even as reports say that the shoot of superstar Rajinikanth’s upcoming film Kochadaiyaan is progressing ever-so smoothly, news about it has been trickling in on a daily basis now. A Rajini-starrer never fails to make news as it involves the dreams, aspirations and hard work of hundreds of technicians, crew members besides the actors and actors involved in the film.
Rajini, who recently left for Hong Kong to shoot for the third schedule of the film’s shoot, is said to be keeping his co-actors in splits by displaying his multi-lingual skills. As readers might be aware, Rajini can speak fluently in Hindi, Marathi, Kannada, Telugu, Malayalam and English besides Tamil. His skills in conversing with effortless ease in all these languages, came to fore during the shoot of Kochadaiyaan.
The film has Bollywood’s Deepika Padukone and Shobana (of Thalapathy fame) as Rajini’s heroines. The first and second schedules were wrapped in London and Kerala recently and the crew has now camped in Hong Kong for the third schedule. While Rajini speaks in Hindi with Jackie Shroff (who has gone on record saying that he is the ‘perfect’ on-screen villain for Rajini), he interacts with Deepika in Kannada.
Though Deepika is a Marathi girl, she is well-versed in Kannada and as Rajini was brought up in Bangalore in his younger days, he is very fluent in that language too. Like he did in his hit film Panakkaran more than a couple of decades ago wherein he’d speak in many languages in a particular sequence, Rajini is repeating the same feat after many years. The difference is that this time it’s off-screen!
