That Bollywood actor Jackie Shroff will be seen in south superstar Rajinikanth’s Kochadaiyaan is old news. The veteran star is excited about working with the superstar but doesn't want to give away too much detail about his role, let alone the film. Not willing to reveal too much, he says he is donning the role of a raja (king) and adds he isn't permitted to say too much.
The film has Deepika Padukone as the female lead and features a bevy of stars including R Sarathkumar, Vijayakumar and Aadhi. It is expected that the film will release in Telugu, English, Hindi and Japanese, and is likely to hit theatres this year.
Like everyone, he said it was 'excellent working with Rajinikanth.' “He is the superstar of India...we had a great time,” he told reporters in Mumbai. Incidentally, Jackie and Rajini have earlier worked together in Subhash Ghai's Uttar Dakshin (1987).
