There is a saying 'age does not matter unless you are a cheese'.
The equation is true at least in superstar Rajinikanth's case, as
he has reportedly told the makers of Rana that he is
unhappy with Deepika Padukone's looks in the upcoming Tamil film.
It was reported that Rajinikanth's Rana, which was
supposed to take-off yesterday, was postponed due to the
incompletion of the movie's special set at the AVM Studios. Now, a
reliable source has it that the movie was delayed after Rajinikanth
told director KS Ravikumar to work on Deepika Padukone's looks. The
actor has reportedly said that Deepika should have a simple
traditional look yet glamorous.
Rajinikanth plays a triple role of three different ages in
Rana. Deepika Padukone pairs him for the younger
character. The hunt for the female leads for Rajini's middle-aged
character and old-aged character are on. It may be recalled that
Rekha, Hema Malini, Madhuri Dixit and Vidya Balan were approached
for the key roles.
However, Rana is directed by KS Ravikumar. The
historical movie is jointly produced by Soundarya Rajinikanth and
Eros International. Oscar Award winner AR Rahman will score the
music for the film and Rathnavelu will handle the camera.
