What made Deepika accept Kochadaiiyaan. Reports say, Deepika Padukone took up the film only because of Rajinikanth's presence in the flick. When director Soundarya Ashwin met her with the idea of casting, the Bollywood diva gave green signal without a second thought about it.
The actress didn't even hear the story or ask about the character as she felt it was a huge honour for her to share screen space with the legend. Deepika Padukone felt that it was a great opportunity for her to interact with the star and discuss cinema with him.
Deepika Padukone will be romancing one of three characters of Rajinikanth in Kochadaiiyaan. She plays the role of Princess Vandana. Sources add that she has enacted her role well.
