Kochadaiyaan is an upcoming Tamil period film to be directed by Soundarya R Ashwin.

The film will feature Rajinikanth alongside an ensemble cast, including R Sarathkumar, Katrina Kaif, Sneha, Aadhi, Shobana, Nassar and Jackie Shroff.

The film, which is expected to be shot with motion capture in 3D, will have cinematography handled by Rajiv Menon whilst background score and soundtrack will be composed by AR Rahman.

End of January, Soundarya had tweeted that she had started working with her “appa” (father). She said that the shoot hadn’t yet begun, but work was on, full time. Releasing the first look also on Twitter, she said: “Tweeps. First look out this Sunday God is great!!!”

This is also going to be the first 3D film in India with performance capturing technology.
