Deepika Padukone on Rajini

Bollywood starlet Deepika Padukone has opined that she is always willing to make whatever adjustments she might have to make in order to star in superstar Rajinikanth’s upcoming film ‘Rana’. The dazzling Deepika was signed up as one of Rajini’s heroines in ‘Rana’ and she even starred briefly opposite him on 29th of April, the day the film was launched and the day on which Rajini fell ill.

The superstar, after getting treated at Singapore’s Mount Elizabeth Hospital, returned to Chennai on 13th of July and has been taking rest ever since. He is said to be frequently meeting K.S. Ravikumar, the director of ‘Rana’, to brush up the script and the dialogues of the film. The duo has decided to re-start the suspended shooting of the film from 3rd of October at Hyderabad’s Ramojirao Film City. Sources close to Rajini say that this particular schedule is likely to last 100 days.

Deepika hasn’t lost her patience and has described Rajini as someone who is ‘so special’ to Indian cinema. “I have been intimated by Ravikumar about the date of commencement of the shooting. In fact, I don’t need to be reminded in advance. I’m always available for shooting for Rajini’s ‘Rana’ and would do all the necessary adjustments in my call-sheet diary as and when they call me.

“I will never keep the ‘Rana’ Unit waiting for me. After all, isn’t Rajini Sir so special to Indian cinema?” asked Deepika while revealing that before she starts shooting for ‘Rana’, she would visit the holy abode of Lord Venkateswara at Tirupathi to pray for the success of ‘Rana’ as well for the continued good-health of Rajinikanth.
