KS Ravikumar has opened up on his forthcoming mega-budget film Rana by confirming that the movie has not been shelved. The rumours related to the film being dropped started doing rounds after superstar Rajinikanth was hospitalized due to gastrointestinal issues.
The director, who was off to abroad to finalize the locations, has clarified that Rana is still very much on. He has said that Rajinikanth's dates are available for the shooting in the second week of July. Thus, the actor's illness has not affected the movie and it will be executed as per the earlier plans, says a source.
He further adds that he had been to Thailand and soon he will be going to London to plan the shooting schedules. Meanwhile, reports say that the director has already shot a song on Deepika Padukone, as he was not keen to waste her committed dates.
