Rajinikanth’s Kochadaiyaan seems to be racing towards the finishing line. The dubbing of the movie is on at full swing at a premier sound studio facility in the city and the Superstar has completed dubbing his portions for the first half of the movie already. Resul Pookutty, the Oscar-winning sound engineer of the film is thrilled with Rajini’s speed, as he tweeted, “First day dub of Kochadaiyaan, I’m happy to see him hale and healthy like every Rajni fan.” He later added, “His dedication and commitment to work is unbelievable! He finished the first half dub in a day!”
With the movie’s release, Rajnikanth will become perhaps the only actor in the world to have been featured in movies from the Black and White era, colour films, 3D (with Sivaji) and now in motion capture technology.
Reportedly, 48 cameras were used to capture the performance of the artistes and four teams of graphic artists from London and Chennai have been working on the film. Rajini has also sung a Tamil song in the film set to the lyrics of Vairamuthu, which contains ancient Tamil words from the Sangam era. He has also recorded a song in London for the Hindi version.
The US theatrical rights have been bought by Atmus Entertainment and the movie will reportedly have special screenings in London, Los Angeles and India.
