Rajinikanth's "Kochadaiiyaan" is yet to hit the screens but speculations surrounding the superstar's next film have started to emerge.

Rumour has it that Rajinikanth has been approached with scripts by top directors, such as Shankar, KS Ravi Kumar and KV Anand. And according to reliable sources, the superstar has chosen Ravi Kumar's script, reported Behindwoods.

Earlier, speculations were rife that post "Kochadaiiyaan", Rajinikanth will be working in "Rana" and the film will be directed by Ravi Kumar. But it seems the script that Rajinikanth has selected is not "Rana" but a different one. Apparently, the film will be produced by Rockline Productions's Venkatesh. The website reports that the film might go on floors by the end of March or April. However, there has been no official confirmation about the project yet.

The superstar, who was last seen in Shankar's 2010 release "Endhiran", will be making a comeback of sorts with "Kochadaiiyaan." It has been more than a year since the film went on floors. The magnum opus, helmed by Soundarya Rajinikanth, is one of the most awaited films of 2014.

The Rajini starrer, touted as an epic drama, will have the superstar appearing in dual roles. Other cast members include Deepika Padukone, Aadhi, Sarathkumar, Jackie Shroff, Shobana and Nassar.

"Kochadaiiyaan", made on a budget of over ₹100 crore, is jointly produced by Eros International and Media One Global Entertainment. The film's music, composed by Oscar-winner AR Rahman, will be released in March. The exact date for the audio launch is not revealed, though certain reports suggest it would be on 9 March. The film's trailer is also expected to be released on the same day.

The epic drama is all set to hit the screens on 11 April. It will be released in around 6,000 screens worldwide and in various languages, including Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, Marathi, Bhojpuri, Bengali and Punjabi.
