Deepika Padukone seems to have finally managed to sign forthcoming
Tamil film Kochadaiyaan. The actress has reportedly given
her nod to play the female lead role, which was also offered to
several Bollywood actresses including Katrina Kaif.
"Deepika Padukone has been confirmed as heroine in
Kochadaiyaan," film unit sources said. It may be recalled
that the actress, who was roped in for Rajinikanth's Rana,
found it difficult to allot the dates after the movie got delayed
following the superstar's illness.
Later, Soundarya Rajinikanth announced that Rana was
postponed till August and Rajinikanth would be working in
Kochadaiyaan before starting the former. She started the
casting process from the scratch and approached several top
Bollywood actresses, as Deepika Padukone had date issues.
However, Kochadaiyaan also features Sneha, Sarath
Kumar, Shobana, Aadhi, Jackie Shroff in the cast. It has AR
Rahman's music and Rajiv Menon's cinematography.
