Rajni is all set to romance Rekha, Deepika Padukone and most probably Vidya Balan, the three divas of Bollywood in his next flick RANA. In the film, Rajni will be seen portraying 3 roles. Deepika Padukone will be seen romancing young Rajnikanth. For the role of young wife, Asin and Katrina were approached earlier. But, if everything goes well, the silky beauty,Vidya Balan will be seen opposite middle – aged Rajni.
Rarely anyone in the film industry dares to say no to Rajni. Vidya Balan says that the talks are on but nothing is official as yet. She’s hoping to have a grand entry into the world of Tollywood and her entry will be nothing short of the dream if she bags this project. According to the sources, the offer was placed by Rajni’s daughter, Saundarya. The film is expected to release next year. Insiders say that Vidya is already doing a South Film and doesn’t want to take on more south projects. The sole reason behind this is that she doesn’t want to label herself as a South Indian Actress. Let’s see whether Rajnikanth is able to attract this Silky beauty of Bollywood.
The graphics, which are being used in the movie will surely make a benchmark in the entire entertainment industry on the whole. The cast is not finalized yet, but still director K.S. Ravi Kumar has already finished shooting some of the live sequences of the movie and it seems Vidya is on a role. Even a short trailer of the film has been uploaded on the internet. Her fans hope she gets a serious wardrobe makeover, as people think she badly needs one.
Earlier, Madhuri was approached to playthe character of Rajni’s aged wife in the movie. But, she however denied the offer. The role that was offered to her was of an aged lady. The reason behind her rejection was that she doesn’t want to get into those senior actors category and is not interested in playing such aged roles. Finally the role went to the dazzling diva of Bollywood, Rekha and she will star opposite aged Rajnikanth.
After Robot, this will be the most expensive movie of the nation. According to the sources, the budget of RANA is approximately Rs. 300 crores. The Shehanshah of Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan will also be seen sharing screen space with Rajnikanth. These two supremes will be seen together onscreen after almost a time span of 20 years. Big B, however, will only be seen doing a cameo in the movie. Insiders say that Big B will appear in the second half of the film.
The bond between Amitabh Bachchan and Rajnikanth started from the films Andha Kanoon and Giraftar where the two were seen sharing screen space together. The last film they did together was Hum that released 2 decades ago i.e. in 1991.
