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 were planning to publicise the film at the international level. But now it is believed that they have changed their plans and the trailer is unlikely to release at the ongoing film festival.
"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.
He had also claimed, "He is adamant on going. He has become extremely frail. But whenever anyone mentions his delicate health to Rajiniji, he gives the example of Mr Bachchan who has braved the most serious illnesses and done exactly what he wanted and gone exactly where he wanted in his career."
However, now it appears like the plans of launching the trailer has been shelved. It appears to be true as neither the director nor any member of the film is opening up on their plans.
Soundarya Ashin tweeted, "Hey guys ..Trailer shaping out well. Working on more surprises...All efforts are going in to release it asap .Will keep u posted !!" It has to be noted that the director has not mentioned about the trailer being released in Cannes which has paved for this rumour.
