Superstar Rajinikanth's bilingual film, Kuselan, was launched as Kucheludu in Telugu yesterday evening at Hotel Novotel, Hi-Tech City, Hyderabad. TDP president and former Chief minister Chandrababu Naidu, Union Minister Dasari Narayana Rao, Chiranjeevi, Venkatesh, Jagapati Babu, Ashwini Dutt, P. Vasu, K. Raghavendra Rao, Rajasekhar, were among the guests. Vyjayanti Movies will make this movie. Chiranjeevi sounded the clapboard. Chandrababu Naidu switched on the camera, and Dasari Narayana Rao did the formal first shot direction.


While addressing the gathering, Jagapati Babu said: "I couldn’t believe myself when I was asked by Ashwini Dutt to do a film with Rajinikanth as my costar. I thank Rajnikanth, Ashwini Dutt and Vasu for their belief in me"

Speaking on this occasion, Rajinikanth said that he felt immensely joyful to be part of Tollywood industry after several years. "I love Telugu people and I love the Telugu language. The launch of Pedarayudu was graced and blessed by ANR and NTR. The film went on to become a hit. Now too, I find good people here who have come to bless us. I am sure Kucheludu will become a super hit". Rajinikanth then went on to narrate a few incidents in a lighthearted vein referring to Mohan Babu. "At one time in the past”, he said, “when I was in a dilemma whether to continue in Telugu or Tamil, my dear friend Mohan Babu suggested I continue in Tamil because there was a lot of politics in Tollywood. Later, I realized he was just securing his position.

Also, I was offered 1 1/2 acre land in Jubilee hills as remuneration for a film. My friend once again advised me not to fall for that and instead suggested I stick with cash. Now every time I drive through Jubilee Hills, I feel bad looking at that spot of land because all of you here know how much 1 1/2 acres of land can cost today in Jubilee hills!” Tongue in cheek, Rajinikanth attributed his stardom in Tamil to Mohan Babu - because it is on his advice that he stayed with the Tamil film industry.

After the Superstar had spoken, Chiranjeevi noted: "Everybody knows Rajinikanth is the superstar. He is now an international figure with his influence felt even in Japan. We are all proud of him. When I felt personally disturbed in the recent past, Rajinikanth asked me to come to Chennai. He personally spent long hours with me. He is a philosopher. He is a guide. His positive energy is amazing. This happened during the Deepawali celebrations last year. Rajini gave me a lot of moral and psychological support. It is my luck to have a friend like Rajini. I wish the Vyjayanti Movies team all good luck."

Then it was TDP Chandrababu Naidu’s turn, and he heaped praise on Chiranjeevi and Rajnikanth. "I am happy to be here in the world of glamour. This film with Rajinikanth is a great contribution. Director P. Vasu has the capacity to do great films. The positive energy of Rajinikanth is great. Though he looks so simple, he holds extraordinary powers as a noble human being."

Dasari Narayana Rao then said: " Kucheludu has the rare combination of Rajinikanth and Jagapati Babu. I know Rajnikanth for nearly 35 years – from Day One of his industry entry. What he was then is the same today. His manners and his respect for others remain the same. This is a rare phenomenon in the film industry. His positive energy is incredible. The same brought him universal recognition. I am sure P. Vasu will make a great film with Kucheludu. Shooting for this movie will begin from March 16th to March 23rd at Ramoji Film City.
