KS Ravikumar has reportedly said that the movie will have seven leading in the film. But only three actresses will play opposite Rajinikanth in the film, says the director. As of now, Deepika Padukone is the only actress, who has given her consent to act in the film and the makers of the film are yet to finalize the actresses for the remaining cast, says a source.
Earlier, after finalizing Deepika Padukone, the makers of the film approached Madhuri Dixit to play the role of Rajinikanth's sister in the film. But the actress turned down the offer, as she was not keen to do miniscule role. Later, it was reported that the same role was offered to Rekha but she also refused due to some monetary issues with the film's producers. Meanwhile, Vidya Balan, Ileana D'Cruz and Hema Malini's names are doing for the leading roles in the film.
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.
