When a grief-stricken Rajinikanth made his way through hundreds of onlookers to pay his final respect to the departed soul of music legend MS Viswanathan, it wasn't a surprise that his fully grown beard had subsequently given rise to speculations pertaining to his looks in his upcoming movie.
Even as the debate whether Rajinikanth will sport a grey beard in his next, which corresponds to his actual age is going on, there are fresh reports regarding his on screen pairs in his next as well as in Shankar's Enthiran 2.
When Kochadaiiyaan went on floors, few reports surfaced suggesting that the team had initially planned to rope in Katrina Kaif but the role was later bagged by Deepika Padukone. Now, it looks like both these gorgeous looking ladies will be a part of Enthiran 2.
According to a latest report, the film's main antagonist Vikram will romance Deepika Padukone while Katrina will play Rajinikanth's love interest. If the hearsay materializes, magic on screen would be simply inevitable.
Though nothing regarding Enthiran 2 has been officially declared yet, it could be safely said that Shankar will look to bring on board top Hindi actresses to make the high budget film that much more familiar with the national and international audiences.

Enthiran 2 From 2016
The highly anticipated project is expected to go on floors from 2016. The pre-production works are in motion as you read this article. The music will most probably be composed by AR Rahman.
The Kaththi Connection
Enthiran 2 will most likely be produced by Lyca Entertainment. Vijay's Kaththi was produced by this very production house even as many protested against it. Will Rajinikanth's film face a similar trouble? I doubt that.
Vidya Balan In Ranjith-Rajinikanth Project?
Let us now focus on the ongoing Rajinikanth project. Fresh reports have emerged claiming that Vidya Balan might be roped in to play the female lead in the ongoing Rajinikanth-Pa Ranjith project.
Film To Be Completed Soon
Since this current Rajinikanth project is touted to be a relatively low budget quickie, the shooting of the film will be wrapped before the end of this year. The film is set against the backdrops of Malaysia and Chennai.
The Release Date
This yet to be titled flick will most probably hit the screens early next year. There are some rumours floating around suggesting that the makers are aiming to release the film on the auspicious day of Maha Shivaratri, 2016.
It is seldom you see Rajinikanth sporting a grey beard on screen. He had done it in Valli and Muthu. If this is what Rajinikanth looks like in his next film, it might be considered as a welcome change to his current on screen image.
