Rajinikanth's forthcoming movie
Kochadaiyaan has broken the record
of his earlier movie Sivaji! Well, the satellite rights of
his latest film has been acquired by Jaya TV for a huge price,
which is said to be the highest for a Rajini film till date.
The buzz is that Kochadaiyaan satellite rights have
been sold for more than Rs 5.5 crore, thereby breaking the record
of Rajinikanth's earlier movie Sivaji, which was sold for
Rs 5 crore to Sun TV. Though there is no confirmation on the price,
rumour mills are rife that the film has set a new benchmark.
Eros International Media MD Sunil Lulla, "We are confident that
like Sivaji and Robot, this
(Kochadaiyaan) will also be a landmark film in
Rajinikanth's career with attractive monetization avenues and we
are privileged to be part of it. We are delighted to have Jaya TV
on board for the Tamil satellite rights. We will also be releasing
a separate Hindi version along with the Tamil version."
Rajinikanth's Kochadaiyaan will be seeing the light of
day on a unique day. The magnum opus is likely to release on
12.12.12, which also coincides with the superstar's birthday
(December 12). And the audio of the film will release in September
in Tokyo, Japan.

Padukone is directed by Soundarya Rajinikanth. The 3D film has
