Popular South Indian actress Asin Thottumkal is reportedly back in
the team of Tamil Superstar Rajinikanth's forthcoming movie
Rana, which will be directed by Dashavatharam
fame KS Ravikumar. If sources are to believe, the actress will play
the second heroine in the movie.
Earlier, Asin, Trisha Krishnan and Anushka Shetty were
reportedly approached by the bosses of Rana, when Deepika
Padukone failed to match her dates for the film. But later, Deepika
accepted to play the first heroine by re-adjusting her dates. Now
sources claim that Asin has been roped in for second female lead in
Both Deepika and Asin are basically from South India and with
their excellent acting in Bollywood films, they have won the heart
of audience in the North too. Now, sources claim that their
involvement would add value to Rajini's multicrore project, which
is being made in Tamil Telugu and Hindi.
However, movie Rana is a period film and Rajinikanth
will be seen in a triple role. It is jointly produced by Eros
International and Soundarya's Ocher Studios Private Limited. AR
Rahman will score music and Ratnavelu will handle the camerawork
for the film, which is currently in the pre-production stage. The
shoot is said to be starting in March.
