Even as Superstar Rajinikanth's Baba gears up for re-release in theatres, we hear that the team has added some new scenes in the film. And now, a picture of Rajinikanth reading his lines and dubbing for them has hit the internet. The actor is seen going through his lines carefully in the dubbing studio. The addition of new scenes has piqued the curiosity among the fans of the actor. The film, helmed by Suresh Krissna is also likely to get some major digital enhancements. The film will be screened for composer AR Rahman so that he can remaster the music. The buzz is that the re-released version will hit screens on the occasion of Superstar Rajinikanth's birthday on December 12.
In an interview with a regional YouTube channel, the film's director Suresh Krishna is seen saying it was Superstar Rajinikanth's idea to re-release the film. Talking to the portal, the director said, "Rajinikanth sir had asked me to watch the entire film once again. After I watched it, he asked if I liked it. I said, "Of course, I liked when we made the film 20 years ago. That's when he asked, "How would it be if they re-released the film?"
Baba, hit screens exactly 20 years ago in 2022. Rajinikanth plays the titular character, an atheist, who is blessed by the Mahavtar Baba. Manisha Koirala plays the leading lady in the film, marking her maiden collaboration with Rajinikanth. The supporting star cast includes Goundamani, Sujatha, Ashish Vidyarthi, MN Nambiar, Vijayakumar, Sayaji Shinde, Delhi Ganesh, Deepa Venkat and Crane Manohar. Ramya Krishnan appears in a cameo and reprises her character Neelambari from Padayappa.
The film has music by AR Rahman, cinematography by Chota K Naidu and editing by VT Vijayan. There is a buzz that the re-released version will have an alternate ending, however, there's no confirmation on the same.
