Rajinikanth has a lot of clout in the film industry. It is especially evident from Deepika’s statement that it was only Rajinikanth’s presence that spurred her on to sign Kochadaiiyan. Deepika who will next be seen in the film says that she didn’t check what her role was about and just signed up for it because of the supertar’s association. For Deepika, it is the first time that she’ll be sharing screen space with the legend.
Deepika says that she became a part of the film due to emotional reasons. Turn out that when Soundarya, who is the director of the film and also Rajini’s daughter, approached Deepika, the actress did not even feel it necessary to hear the concept, script or even her role. Deepika felt that it would be a huge honour to work alongside the Superstar and just agreed to the movie without any further questions.
