We have received fresh updates on Rajinikanth’s triple offering Rana saying that evergreen actress Rekha has walked out of the project. The reason cited for the decision being a monetary one, as the actress was not satisfied with the package being offered to play a role opposite the elder Rajini in Rana.
Sources reveal, “Rekha demanded 4 crores for her role and the producers were not willing to pay such a hefty amount to her, eventually resulting in Rekha calling it quits for the project.”
Following Rekha’s refusal to star in the project Ocher Studios have decided to rope in another evergreen southie who mesmerised the Bollywood audience with her charm. It’s none other than the enchanting Hema Malini who steps in Rekha’s place.
Now Vidya Balan who is known to be choosy with her projects decided to get unwisely choosy for the Rajini movie too. She demanded to read the script before agreeing upon doing the role opposite middle Rajini in the movie. However we heard that the demand for the script dint sit well with director K S Ravi Kumar who is vested with the responsibility of directing Superstar Rajinkanth.On further inquiry K S Ravi Kumar cleared the air saying, “Firstly we need to get the script finalized as minor changes have been made.Only then can we decide about Vidya’s role or any other further announcements for that matter.”
Another recent development on the movie being, Amitabh Bachchan playing a cameo role in the movie. Big B as he is referred to by his fans will play a small role in the second half of the movie.The Bollywood icon sharing onscreen presence with the Kollywood Superstar will surely generate the needed hype for this upcoming mass Rajini offering.
So Deepika Padukone is a sure shot, Vidya is hanging on thin line, Rekha is out and the best part it’s going to be Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini coming together ensuring the support of a huge Bollywood fan base for Rana and Rajini all the same.
