Bollywood star actress Deepika Padukone is not happy with the way Kochadaiiyaan (Vikrama Simha) has shaped up. She has given dates to the film Rana, which was supposed to be a regular feature film directed by KS Ravi Kumar. However Rajnikanth‘s health conditions forced to call that film off.
Kochadaiiyaan was made with the same storyline and Deepika Padukone agreed to star in this one as Soundarya Ashwin, the director promised to make a path breaking animation film using the motion capture technology. Even Rajnikanth promised Deepika that Kochadaiiyaan would earn her respect as an actress. But Deepika Padukone reportedly didn’t like how the film shaped up and is especially unhappy with the ‘images’ of her.
That is the reason why Deepika Padukone was not seen during the promotions of this film. Rumor mills say that Deepika Padukone is fuming that she has been cheated by Rajnikanth and his daughter by making false promises regarding Kochadaiiyaan. The film has tanked at the Tollywood and Bollywood box office and it has faced similar fate at Kollywood box office after doing very good in its first week.
