Rajinikanth: From black and white to animation
Rajinikanth will be the first Indian to act in four formats of films, black and white, color, 3D and animation.

With Rajinikanth's 'Sivaji' gearing up to release in 3D and him working on 'Kochadaiyaan' that's a period animated entertainer that will also release in 3D, its now said that the Superstar of Tamil cinema, Rajinikanth, will be the first Indian to act in four formats of films, black and white, color, 3D and animation!

It may be mentioned, his 'Kochadaiyaan' was also supposed to be the first Indian film to use performance capture technology, a technology used in films like 'Avatar', but another Tamil film, 'Maattrraan', starring Suriya and Kajal Aggarwal broke this record by using motion capturing technology for the film's action scenes. 'Kochadaiyaan' is the first 3D animation fantasy flick in India.

Speaking on it Rajini had earlier quoted, "Its tough to imagine and act in motion capture technology for there's a lot to imagine and mime. We have to visualise and better to get into the skin of the character without make up, costumes or locations!"

While 'Kochadaiyaan' that's slated to release on Rajini's birthday or sometime later this year was touted to be his next release post his sickness, it came as a pleasant surprise, even to Rajini, that AVM Productions are converting 'Sivaji' into a 3D version and readying it for a release in September!
