There’s nothing Rajinikanth can’t do. True to his larger-than-life onscreen persona, the 61-year-old superstar has done deadly stunts in Kochadaiyaan and has now even rendered a song for the film.
It took an A R Rahman to prod Rajinikanth to step behind a microphone and show his singing prowess. The mega star was at Rahman’s studio recently to record a song for Kochadaiyaan. The number is written by poet-lyricist Vairamuthu and is about a wise man’s perspective on life.
We hear that Rajinikanth took the job of singing quite seriously and repeatedly asked Rahman for instructions and suggestions.
Kochadaiyaan has Rajinikanth playing a sage. The film is directed by his daughter Soundarya Rajinikanth and is shot in 3D using the performance capture technology that was the highlight of the Hollywood films like Avatar and The Adventures of Tintin.
The film stars Deepika Padukone in the lead role opposite Rajinikanth. The supporting roles are played by Shobana, Jackie Shroff, R. Sarathkumar, Aadhi and Nasser.
Kochadaiyaan is slated to release in August, 2012.
