K S Ravikumar clarifies the doubts over ‘Kochchadaiyaan’
Given that the pre-production work for ‘Raana’ has been virtually completed, the actor’s decision to finish the animation film before that came as a surprise to many, as the unit, ti…ll recently, maintained that Rajini would soon resume shooting for the film.
Director K.S. Ravikumar, also the director of ‘Raana’, said: “We have completed just one song for ‘Raana’. All of us felt that ‘Kochadaiyaan’ should come ahead of ‘Raana’. Once we complete the 3D film, it will certainly be ‘Raana’ next.”
On whether the decision to make an animation film was based on considerations about the actor’s health, he said, “Even for this film he will actually perform every scene. It will be inside a hi-tech studio, where we will record it using the motion capturing technique,” Mr. Ravikumar said. Once the actor’s body language is captured for every scene, it would be assigned to the animation.
Asked if this was an attempt to revive ‘Sultan the Warrior’, an animation project planned by Soundarya a few years ago, Mr. Ravikumar said, “Not at all. This is a completely different subject.” ‘Kochadaiyaan’ is one of the names of the Lord Shiva, and the name of a king.
After Enthiran (ROBOT), before “RANA”, Super star Rajinikanth’s next release would be a HI-TECH 3 D film titled “KOCHADAIYAAN”.This is the first time that a 3D film with Performance capturing technolo…gy is being produced in India.
It is worth mentioning that all time Box office Hit “AVATAR” Directed by James Cameron and the latest sensation creating new records “The Adventures of TIN TIN “Directed by Steven Spielberg have been produced with the same performance capturing technology, in Hollywood.
K.S.Ravikumar has written the story, Screenplay, Dialogue and is doing the Direction supervision for “Kochadaiyaan”.
The film is directed by Soundarya Ashwin Rajinikanth.
The film is produced by Eros International and Media one Global entertainment Limited. The work is progressing in a fast pace and is scheduled for release in August 2012.
Rajinikanth would act in RANA following Kochadaiyaan in 2012.
