The 'Boss' is back with ‘Kochadaiiyaan’ after 4 years of hiatus and health scare.

Superstar Rajinikanth and Deepika Padukone starrer ‘Kochadaiyaan’ will have a worldwide release on April 11 .

The songs of ‘Kochadaiyaan’ was released in Chennai on Sunday along with Oscar-winning composer A R Rahman, Bollywood actors Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Jackie Shroff, among others.

Veteran directors K Balachandar, S P Muthuraman, Shankar, K S Ravi Kumar and lyricist Vairamuthu were also present during the event.

Of the nine songs directed by Rajinikanth’s daughter Soundarya R Ashwin, noted singer S P Balasubrahmanyam, Rahman, and Rajinikanth’s wife Latha have lent their voices.

This will be India’s first motion capture photo-realistic animated film.

Shah Rukh Khan said he is such a big fan of Rajinikanth that he decided to attend the audio launch of his film 'Kochadaiiyaan'.

SRK, who recently paid a tribute to Rajinikanth vis-a-vis ‘Lungi dance’ in ‘Chennai Express’, was personally invited by film’s director and Rajinikanth’s younger daughter Soundarya R Ashwin. SRK had tweeted, “Kochadaiiyaan time. Always a pleasure to meet Rajni Sir and his family. Onward to Chennai.”

Deepika Padukone opted for a thorough southern style dressing with a pink and black sari. She finished off her look with heavy gold bangles and earrings complete with gajra (flowers)!

Deepika essays the role of princess Vadhana in the film.

"(I'm) very happy (that) Deepika Padukone, our princess Vadhana, will be in Chennai for the music launch," posted Soundarya on her Twitter page.

Also starring in the film are Jackie Shroff, Shobana, R. Sarath Kumar, Aadi Pinisetty, Nasser and Rukmini.

Motion or performance capture technology helps filmmakers record the movements of the actor — in specially made suits, which capture the emotions, gestures and body language of the actor and translates it into animation.

Touted to be made along the lines of Hollywood films Avatar and Tin Tin, the film has been jointly produced by Eros International and Media One Global Entertainment.
