Deepika Padukone will be seen with superstar Rajinikanth in Kochadaiyaan and has said that the actor inspired her a lot with his dedication and passion while shooting for the film, which experiments with performance-capturing technique.
“Working with him in Kochadaiyaan was very inspiring for the kind of energy he brings to the sets even after working for so many years. He has that passion one can easily see in his eyes. After his illness, I saw the same passion,” said Deepika.
“We are trying out a new technique in Kochadaiyaan, the performance-capturing technique. So it’s a completely new experience for me. While the emotions are what I’ve conveyed, the technique used is completely new,” she added.
Kochadaiyaan is Rajinikanth’s daughter Soundarya R. Ashwin’s directorial debut and the period drama is the superstar’s first film after his illness.
The 61-year-old was out of action in 2011 when he developed health problems and was flown to Singapore for treatment.
Kochadaiyaan will also be released in Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam, Japanese, Telugu and English and Deepika might even dub for the Tamil version.
“As for Japanese or Telugu, I don’t know these languages. The idea is to make this a big international film coming from India.” she said.
