A team of technical experts from South India and China have worked on the animation and the overall completion of the project.

The film will feature Rajinikanth in dual role, while Sarath Kumar, Shobana, Aadi Pinisetty and Nassar will be seen in important roles.

Also starring Deepika Padukone and Jackie Shroff, 'Kochadaiyaan' is touted to be India's first motion capture technology film being made along the lines of Hollywood films like 'Avatar'.
