Rajinikanth's Rana has been gaining more attention for its
female cast. Many Bollywood actresses' names have been doing rounds
for the female leads in the film. Now, the latest buzz is that it
will feature seven ladies, out of which three of them will romance
the superstar in the film.
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.
