Rajinikanth is coming to town again as Sivaji, on his birthday, but this time in 3D. The film has been chopped and has been brought down to 137 minutes. We hear that a couple of comedy scenes, romantic scenes and action sequences have been chopped off from the film.
Particularly, the “Vaanga Pazhagalam” scene, where Solomon Pappaiah introduces Sivaji to his daughters, Angavai and Sangavai, is said to have been removed from the film. We are informed that the action sequence starring Kanal Kannan has been chopped and the ‘drive-in’ fight sequence has been trimmed.
The camera handled by KV Anand is boasted to be one of the major strengths, other than Shankar’s direction and Superstar’s screen presence, in making Sivaji a 3D extravaganza.
