The makers of actor Karthi’s upcoming film titled Alex Pandian have decided to release the film’s audio on superstar Rajinikanth’s 62nd birthday which falls on the 12th of December.
12-12-12, the D-day which occurs only once in a century, acquires a special significance this year as it marks the birthday of superstar Rajinikanth. Also a formula shared by rajini fans (12+12+12 = 36 years in cinema for Rajnikanth, reverse 63 is his age) is popularly shared in social networks. Hence the day is already being looked forward to with great enthusiasm and curiosity by Rajini’s fans all over the world. It might not turn out to be a surprise if the day even gets named as ‘Rajini Day’!
Raghava Lawrence, a self-proclaimed admirer and follower of Rajini’s style vis-à-vis religious matters, is bringing out a music video featuring himself and having music by Vijay Anthony in order to pay tribute to Rajini on this auspicious day. It’s now the turn of the crew of Alex Pandian to joint the list of those who want to release the film’s audio on this day as a ‘tribute’ to Rajini.
Rajini had played Alex Pandian, a tough cop, in one of his super-duper hits Moondru Mugam in the early eighties. To many of Rajini’s fans, it remains as one of his best-ever performances as on date. Karthi-Anushka starrer has been named after the legendary character essayed by Rajini in Moondru Mugam and as such, the makers have decided to release the audio and the trailer of Alex Pandian on the eve of Rajini’s birthday.
Directed by Suraaj, it marks Karthi’s return to silver-screen after the not so successful Saguni which released a few months back. Gnanavel Raja of Studio Green, the producer, feels that the fascination and affection the masses have for the name Alex Pandian (thanks to Rajini’s portrayal of the character in Moondru Mugam) would help the film fare well at the box-office.
