Mumbai: Bollywood actor Jackie Shroff will be seen in south superstar Rajinikanth-starrer Tamil film `Kochadaiyaan`. `Kochadaiyaan`, a period film, is directed by Rajini`s daughter Soundarya.

"I am doing Rajinikanth`s film `Kochadaiyaan`. I play the role of a Raja (king), beyond this I cannot talk much as I am not allowed to do so," Jackie told reporters here last night at the festival of Vidhu Vinod Chopra`s films.

The film, also featuring R Sarathkumar, Vijayakumar and Deepika Padukone, will be released in Telugu, English, Hindi and Japanese too. It is expected to hit the theatres this year.

Talking about his experience of working with Rajinikanth, Jackie said, "It was excellent working with him. He is superstar of India...we had great time."

Jackie and Rajini have earlier worked together in Subhash Ghai`s `Uttar Dakshin`.
