considering top B-town babes to pair up with the superstar. We hear
that the makers of the upcoming movie are planning to approach
The Dirty Picture actress Vidya Balan and Ghajini
gal Asin Thottumkal.
Rumour mills has it that Vidya Balan and Asin are also in the
race to play one of the female leads in Kochadaiyaan. It
may be recalled that the former was approached for Rana

above-mentioned actresses, Anushka Shetty has also been approached
to team up with Rajinikanth in the multilingual film.

sister in Kochadaiyaan. As far as the technical department
is concerned, Oscar Award winner AR Rahman and cinematographer
Rajiv Menon have been signed.

Kochadaiyan Rana Dheeran. The movie directed by Soundarya
Rajinikanth is being made by the 'motion capturing' technique. It
is produced by Eros International & Media One and expected to
hit the screens in August 2012.
