Well, here’s more news that is bound to delight the fans of the superstar.

Yes, that Rajini will be working on not just 'Rana' but also on another film titled 'Kochadaiyaan' is now an established fact. Work on the movie, the story and screenplay of which have been written by director K S Ravikumar, it seems has already started.

But doubts pertaining to the meaning of the title kept continuing to crop up until yesterday, when the director of the film, Soundarya, tweeted, “'Kochadaiyaan' is one of Lord Shiva’s names.This is a prequel to 'Rana'. Its performance capture will be similar to (that of) 'Avatar'.”

The clarification seems to have strengthened the belief that Rajinikanth has a special place for Lord Shiva in his heart. Apparently, two of the superstar’s earlier films -- 'Arunachalam' and 'Annamalai'-- that went on to become blockbusters too, had the names of Lord Shiva as their titles.
