CHENNAI: Super Star Rajnikant is all set to star in a French movie. Though the appearance will be brief.

The film "Rent a Wife" is slated for release in 2006. This news was disclosed at the International Film Festival of India, (IFFI), Panjim, Goa by Etienne Dubaille, an official of French Film company, Chabat Chezwam.

French filmmaker Alain Chabat wanted a small filler for a fight sequence in his comedy film "Rent A Wife".

His eyes fell on a martial arts sequence in Rajnikant's Tamil film "Muthu" and he decided to use it.

The 1998 film "Muthu" travelled to Japan where it turned into a big success and the Tamil superstar became a household name in the island nation.

On behalf of Muthu's producers, Kandasamy Bharathan said the French company had got permission to use the sequence.
