The audio launch of Rajinikanth's "Kochadaiiyaan", which was expected to happen on 28 February, has been pushed to the second week of March.
According to entertainment industry tracker Sreedhar Pillai, "Kochadaiiyaan" audio release has been delayed as the film's trailer is getting ready. The film's music is composed by Oscar winner AR Rahman.
Sreedhar tweeted, "Kochadaiiyaan audio which was 2 b held on Feb 28 has been pushed to March second week as trailer is getting ready."
However, the epic drama has been confirmed to hit the screens on 11 April across the globe. The film, produced by Eros International and Media One Global Entertainment, will have the biggest ever screen count for a Tamil release. "Eros is proud to present this magnum opus with Rajinikanth, which will take the Indian film industry to the next level. We are confident that this will be a landmark film in world cinema as a result of the ground breaking technology used," Sunil Lulla, Managing Director, Eros International Media Ltd, said in a press release.
"The film will be released in Tamil, Hindi, Telugu, Marathi, Bhojpuri, Bengali and Punjabi in India and overseas in more than 6,000 screens. We will be releasing an English version internationally as well," he said.
"Kochadaiiyaan" is deemed as India's first 3D film that has used motion-capturing techniques. The film will have Rajinikanth appear in dual roles - as a father and as a son. The epic drama is directed by Rajini's younger daughter Soundarya, who marks her directorial debut.
Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone will play the female lead, while the other cast members include Sarathkumar, Shobana, Nassar, Aadhi and Jackie Shroff.
"Kochadaiiyaan" was expected to hit the screens last year, but the film's release was delayed multiple times. Finally, the makers have announced its release date as 11 April, which will be a special Tamil New Year treat for fans.
The first look teaser of the film has already been released and has received mixed response from fans. The trailer of the Rajini starrer is expected to be released during the audio launch event. The function is expected to be a star-studded affair with the presence of Rajini and other film personalities.
