  • Chandramukhi in Zulu ?? Wow thats a news. Probably Lakalakalaka was some sacred word in Zulu. Thats why.

    And yes, navin's debate.. put me this thot in my mind.. can a software engineer agree to work for Rs. 1500 a month, if estimated that he is doing work equal to that of a Mason..

  • Most of the dialogues may be in the line of "lakha lakha lakha..". Once it succeeds, we can hope to see some more Rajini movies getting dubbed into Zulu.. like the Rajini fever attacked Japan sometime back... so those erstwhile production houses have some more business.
