It has learned that Rajni’s daughter Soundarya has changed the name of her forthcoming production, the ambitious 3D film initially titled “Sultan – The Warrior”, to “Hara”. And the lead character now will be like ‘Lord Krishna’. This decision was taken probably after the frenzy that followed “Robot” as people made a demi-God out of their iconic matinee idol.
Hara will see Rajnikanth play the role of an armor-clad hero who saves the world from dire straits. The film that is slated for release in 12 languages is a period film on the lines of Troy. Soundarya will add new mannerisms to her father’s on-screen persona that include familiar moves like him tossing a cigarette in the air and seeing it fall right between his lips.
Rajnikanth’s fan base has swollen since his last release and people are ready to accept whatever he does. "This film will just put it out in a more blatant form," says a production source from Chennai. When contacted, an official from Soundarya’s side confirmed about the details of the development.
