Rajinikanth‘s Rana is making waves even before it is ready for release mainly because of the stupendous success of Robot. The film Rana is an animation-cum-live action film being jointly produced by Rajini’s daughter Soundarya and Warner Bros. The live action part is being directed by KS Ravikumar. The film has music by AR Rahman.
Deepika Padukone has already been signed up to play opposite Rajinikanth. Since Rajini is playing three different roles, two more heroines are to be roped in. There were reports that Madhuri Dixit was offered one of the leading lady roles and she has declined. The news now is that veteran actress Rekha is being contacted. Since Soundarya has good rapport with Rekha, the actress may agree. For the third leading lady role, Trisha and Asin are in the reckoning.
Rana is being made in Tamil, Hindi, Telugu and English. The film is likely to release during the Dussera festival season this year.
