Rajini's film Kochadaiyaan will definitely not be hitting the screen this Diwali it appears. The reason for this is twofold. First of all, the makers want to make sure that Rajini's comeback film after nearly two years is absolutely perfect since the expectations will be higher than ever before after Enthiran.
Secondly, Shah Rukh Khan's film with Katrina Kaif under Yash Chopra's banner will be releasing for this Diwali about which Yash Chopra made an announcement long ago. Rajini and SRK are good buddies and Rajini even gave a guest appearance for Ra - One so they have an unspoken gentleman's agreement not to compete with each other at the box office. Hence Kochadaiyaan's release date has been postponed. But his Tamil fans are still hoping that perhaps the Tamil version at least will be released for Diwali.
