The spokesperson said that the makers of Kochadaiyaan have announced a long time ago that the movie would release on 12.12.12 which coincides with Rajinikanth's birthday. But Vishwaroopam is likely to hit the screens either in September or October. That means there is no clash between the two movies. So, the question on Rajinikanth and Kamal Hassan meeting to discuss about the releases never arise, he concludes.
Rajinikanth's Kochadaiyaan is a mega-budget film directed by his daughter Soundarya Ashwin. It features Deepika Padukone, Jackie Shroff, Sarath Kumar and others in the cast. It is a period film that is inspired by Pandya king Kochadaiyaan Ranadheeran and it is a fictional account of the ruler.
On the other end, Vishwaroopam is a spy-thriller starring Kamal Hassan, Pooja Kumar, Andrea Jeremiah, Rahul Bose and others in the cast. In addition to writing the story, screenplay and dialogues, Kamal has taken the responsibility of directing the movie.
