Now it is official. Yes, the eagerly awaited Kamal Hassan's Dasavatharam audio launch will be held on April 25 in Chennai. The Hong Kong based Hollywood star Jackie Chan almost 'confirmed' his dates to this function and will come to Chennai in a charted flight from Hong Kong, a day before the event.
The producer of the film Oscar Ravichandran is making lavish arrangements for Chan's 2 days stay in Chennai and he booked the entire top floor of Adayar Park Sheraton for 3 days for Chan and his personal security guards.
The total cost of Jackie Chan's visit to Chennai comes around Rs. 1.25 million US dollars (approximately Rs.5.5 crores). Remember the audio rights of the films entire editions just sold out for Rs.2.65 crores only. Sony BMG, the audio owners of Dasavatharam will pay one crore rupees to share the audio launch expenses.
The audio launch will be held at Nehru Indoor stadium, where leading stars from Bollywood, Telugu Cinema and Malayalam Cinema are expected to take part. Amitabh Bachchan has already sent his positive reply to the producer. But Superstar Rajinikanth, who is busy in his Kuselan shooting, is yet to confirm his position to attend the event.
