Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone, who is the leading lady of the film, is missing from the first trailer but Soundarya said that she will feature prominently in the second teaser.
The beautiful princess Vadhana Devi (Deepika's character)... Next teaser just to reveal your stunning looks," Soundarya posted on twitter.
The music has been composed by Oscar winner AR Rahman and will be launched in October. Rajnikanth himself has also lend his voice in one song in the film.
'Kochadaiiyaan' will be dubbed and simultaneously released in Telugu (as 'Vikrama Simha'), Malayalam, English and Hindi.
