The long wait for Kochadaiiyaan is finally over. The producers of the movie, Mediaone Global Entertainment Ltd, have confirmed that the magnum opus will hit the marquee on May 9! Promotions for the movie are all set to begin in earnest from this week. Actress Deepika Padukone and director Soundarya R Ashwin will visit major cities in India as part of a public relations exercise for Kochadaiiyaan!
The mega budget project has been in the works for over two years and has encountered several obstacles on its way to the theatres. The movie was originally scheduled for an April 11 release, but was postponed indefinitely due to issues with distributors and the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. The movie’s soundtrack has garnered positive reviews and provided a huge boost to the struggling project. With its huge star cast and out of control budget, this flick may well prove to be an acid test for first time director Soundarya R Ashwin.
