Universal super star,Rajinikanth is mighty pleased with the digitally re-mastered version of his iconic 1995 film ‘Baashha,’ which is gearing up for re-release next month. Directed by Suresh Krissna, the film was produced by RM Veerappan, and his son Thangaraj is the visionary behind the idea to digitise and re-release ‘Baashha’.
Thangaraj said, “Rajini sir had seen the trailer of the re-mastered version of the film and really liked it. He asked if it was my father’s idea to re-release ‘Baashha,’ and I told him it was mine. I explained to him what we had achieved technically with the film and he was delighted to know composer Deva sir had rescored for the entire film.”The film chronicles the story of a hardworking auto-rickshaw driver who once ruled as a dreadful gangster. Recalling his meeting with Rajinikanth, Thangaraj said, “He shared anecdotes about how my father modified ‘Baashha,’ and how he was responsible in the success of the film.”
