Superstar Rajinikanth has asked those behind the 3D version of his blockbuster film 'Sivaji' to release it before Diwali, after he learnt that Vijay's 'Thupakki' and Suriya's 'Maatraan' is a Diwali release.
According to sources, Rajini felt that his film should not pose a hindrance to the collection of the film, which stars two young actors in the lead. Hence, he has placed a request before AVM Productions, the producers of 'Sivaji 3D', to release the 3D version before Diwali.
Also, it was Soundarya R Ashwin's wish that her father's first 3D movie should be 'Kochadaiyaan'. However, Rajini has asked her to hold the release of 'Kochadaiyaan', after AVM decided to convert 'Sivaji' into 3D format.
