The shooting of Rajinikanth's Rana, which has been halted
due to the superstar's ill health, may go for a title change, as it
has been facing one or the other problem from the day it was
announced. Grapevine is abuzz with the news that KS Ravikumar is
planning to consult a numerological expert regarding the title
Rana has been getting unexpected delays from the
beginning. Firstly, it got postponed due to incomplete script
works, then the movie was temporarily paused for the casting of
female leads related issues. After going through initial hiccups,
the movie bosses announced that the movie would be launched on
April 20, but was postponed again, as the specially erected set for
the muhurat was not completed on time.
Finally, on the muhurat day, Rajinikanth was hospitalized and
discharged on the same day. Again in a few days, the actor was
rushed to the same hospital due to breathing related issues.
Considering all these facts, director KS Ravikumar felt that
seeking numerological help for the title change might help the
cause and change the fortunes of the film. It is said that the
superstar, who is a strong believer in astrology and numerology,
has agreed to the director's wish for the change of the title.
