Rumour mills have started working overtime after Rekha and Vidya Balan opted out of Rajinikanth's Rana. The latest we hear is that the makers of the historical film have offered South Indian highest paid actress Ileana D'Cruz to play one of the female leads in the film.
Reports have claimed that Ileana, who is approached by KS Ravikumar for Rana, has agreed to act opposite Rajinikanth in the film. The actress, who had refused to act in Rajini's earlier film Sultan – The Warrior for some reasons, has reportedly agreed to act without a second thought. It is said that she will be doing a role, which was offered to Vidya Balan.
Meanwhile, the slot, which is vacant after Rekha's exit, is expected to be filled by Hema Malini. However, Deepika Padukone has been roped in to play one of the female leads in Rana.
