Deepika Padukone is ready to make her debut in Tamil film industry. The actress, who has became one of the most sought after actresses in Bollywood, is now ready to rule the hearts of Kollywood audience. As we all know, the glamorous diva is entering the industry by pairing opposite none other than South superstar Rajinikanth in the movie, Kochadaiyaan.
The 27-year-old started her acting career in Kannada movie Aishwarya, which starred Upendra. But after her debut movie, she did not turn back at South movies. Now, she is returning to South with Kochadaiyaan. Deepika Padukone was signed to play the female lead in Rajinikanth's Rana, which was dropped following the superstar's ill health.
