Following a huge demand for Rajnikanth movies in Japan especially after the success of s Muthu and Padayappa in the country, Chandramukhi has been sold at a good price for release in Japan.
Anitha, an Indian settled in Japan has procured the release rights of Chandramukhi.
An office-bearer of Indo-Japan Confederation there, Anitha has close links with Tamil filmdom.
Her daughter acted as Kamal Haasan's young daughter in Avvai Shanmughi.
A whopping 33 prints of Chandramukhi will be released all over Japan on 14 April, simultaneous to its release here.
There has been a huge demand for Chandramukhi all over India too. It was only because of the unprecedented demand that the producers took the decision of making the film in Telugu too.
Meanwhile, Rajni is under different kind of pressure now. It is well known that he is now close to the BJP and also his relationship with Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa has also improved.
Reports say this development is worrying the DMK which had pinned lot of hopes on him. The recent IT survey at Rajni's house was said to be a pressure tactic from the DMK camp.
