Superstar Rajinikanth's Kuselan, the remake of Malayalam Blockbuster Katha Parayumbol will hit the screens on July last week. Produced jointly by Seven Arts (the distributors of Katha Parayumbol) and Kavithalaya in Tamil and Seven Arts – Vyjayanthi Movies in Telugu, the shooting of this bilingual is almost nearing its end.
The climax portions have been shot in Pollachi, Udumalai and surrounding areas for the past 3 days and the people of Coimbatore district have turned at large to have a 'Dharshan of Rajini' at the shooting spot. Rajini showed immense pleasure to see the crowd and even spent some time with them and some of the diehard fans of the actor requested him to permit to take photographs with him. More than a hundred photographs were taken on the spot and Rajini himself enthusiastically gave postures to the still photographers along with his fans and fan club functionaries.
According to the producers, the film will hit the screens worldwide simultaneously with nearly 900 plus prints. They have planned to release 700 plus prints in Tamil Nadu and Andhra only. In the remaining 900 prints are allotted for Kerala. The balance will be sent to overseas distributors.
The Tamil and Telugu rights of the movie have been procured by Pyramid Saimira for Rs 64 crores. As the production cost of the movie will come to just around 10 crores excluding Rajini's salary, the movie will prove to be a profit to its producers even before its theatrical release.
Rajini will play the role of superstar in this film and Nayantara plays his lady love. Meena, Vadivelu and Pasupathy are also in the cast.
The shooting of Rajini's portions in Kuselan will be concluded by the end of this week.
