As superstar Rajinikanth's fame reaches farther and wider with each of his release, making a biopic on him would be on the mind of many film-makers across the world.
Apart from highlighting his popularity that is spread across the planet, the rags to riches story - which his life is all about would make for an interesting watch.
Biopic On Their Mind
Soundarya has said the idea was haunting them for a long time now, "the thought of making a film on dad has been haunting us of late. His life is inspirational for so many."
From A Bus Conductor To Demi-god
The biopic will highlight the struggles undergone by the Enthiran actor. His transformation from bus conductor to a demi-god will be extensively captured in the movie.
Aishwarya To Pen The Story?
As reported earlier, Rajinikanth's elder daughter Aishwarya R Dhanush is penning a book on the life of her star father. It is most likely that she will be the one to write the story of the film as well.
Who Will Direct The Film?
Having directed 3 films among them, both Aishwarya and Soundarya have proved their directorial skills. But this biopic will most likely be directed by both of them.
Rajinikanth To Act In The Biopic?
It is not clear if the movie will have a collection of video clippings describing the star actor's life or a freshly made film, starring Rajinikanth himself. Possibilities of another actor playing Rajinikanth cannot be ruled out as well.
Other Cast & Crew
Official announcement pertaining to the film's cast and crew is awaited. Mainstream actors and technicians are expected to be roped in for the project. The biopic might also feature Rajinikanth's real life friends and kins.
If the project goes on floors this year, the film might hit the screen before the end of next year. Stay tuned for further updates pertaining to this development.
But, it definitely is not an easy task to obtain permission from the superstar to make a film based on his journey. Unless, of course, you are his family!
Having directed three films among them, Rajinikanth's daughters Aishwarya R Dhanush and Soundarya R Ashwin are now planning to join hands to make a biopic on their father.
"Yes, we are planning a film on my father's life. My sister Aishwarya is writing a book on my dad. The film seems to be a natural progression from there," Soundarya said in a statement.
Surprisingly, the biopic will expose some of the well-guarded secrets, stashed away in the actor's memory.
"There are certain areas of his life that no one knows about. We want to put those in the film as well. As a daughter and a devoted fan, I love watching him on screen.. and I'm sure we'd love to see a film on him," the Kochadaiiyaan director added.
