We were first to report that Kochadaiyaan was not going to make into the ongoing Cannes Film Festival. The trailer of the film was supposed to be released at the film festival, but the makers of the film shelved their plans at last minute. But why? This question has been asked by the fans of Rajinikanth, and now we have the answer.
According to the sources, director Soundarya Ashwin was not happy with the trailer. She did not want to release an unimpressive trailer, which could cost them dear. Hence, they decided to cancel their Cannes plans and push the trailer release. The source said, "We were all set to go to the festival, but our director was not happy with the final output of the trailer. She didn't want an unsatisfactory trailer to be released at the festival and, therefore, opted out of the festival."
Rajinikanth's prestigious project Kochadaiyaan created a lot of buzz when it was revealed that the trailer of the film would be released at the 66th Cannes Film Festival. It was said that the makers of the film wanted to publicise the film at the international level.
"It's a big moment in the history of Indian cinema. Rajiniji is as excited as a child about the way Kochadaiyaan has turned out. Technique-wise it takes Indian cinema to another level altogether. Rajiniji has shown the rough cut of the film to his close friends. The other day AR Rahman saw the rough cut and was blown away," the film's co-producer Dr Murli Manohar had announced in April about their plans.
