They say that nothing is impossible to Rajinikanth and it appears to be true! Well, for the first time, the Tamil superstar has crooned a Hindi song. Wonder for which movie? Any guess? As we all know, his next movie Kochadaiyaan is simultaneously made in Hindi and for the Bollywood version he has sung the song. The superstar had crooned a song for Tamil version of Kochadaiyaan earlier. Now, Rajinikanth has also lent his voice for the Hindi version of the number. While legendary Vairamuthu has penned the Kollywood version, Irshad Kamil has translated the same number to Hindi. According to reports, the song is basically philosophical in nature and more importantly, about the beliefs and philosophies of the Endhiran actor. For example, man loves to own land but land grabs him in the end due to greediness. The song has been composed by Oscar Award winning musician AR Rahman. Well, the underlining part of the story is that the superstar crooned a song after 21 years for Kochadaiyaan. However, Kochadaiyaan is a period-drama starring Rajinikanth in dual roles. The film also features Jackie Shroff, Shobhana, Aadi Pinisetty, R Sarath Kumar and Nassar. The movie is inspired by Pandya king Kochadaiyaan Ranadheeran and it is a fictional account of the ruler.
