Rajinikanth and KS Ravikumar have joined hands for an entirely new project (no it’s not Hara for those of you still wondering).The movie is titled “Rana” a multilingual to be released in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi and surprisingly Rajini will be a play a triple hero, yes you heard it right – 3 different roles.Well it does bring back memories of Moondru Mugam, the last time he was seen in 3 roles.
Rana is co produced by Eros International and Ocher Studios. Sunil Lulla, Managing Director, Eros International Media Ltd confirms the news, “We are extremely excited to join hands with the icon of Tamil cinema Rajinikanth for Rana and he will be in a triple role in this one.

Soundarya Rajinikanth, Director of Ocher Studios Private Limited says, “We are pleased to join hands with Eros Internationl for Rana and this one will be for each and everyone of you as we hope to reach out to all those expectations along with capturing a global audience.”
AR Rahman has been again roped in for this one after he scored for Rajini’s recent flick Enthiran. Cinematography will be taken care of by Randy while editing is to be handled by Anthony, a winning combination again from the Enthiran team. Rajeevan will take up Art direction duties. Technical and special effects will be co handled by daughter Soundarya Rajinikanth and Emmy award winning Charles Darby from Eyeqube Studios.
