Heroines across the country never think twice about pairing up opposite superstar Rajinikanth. Such is the man’s star power and charisma that many leading Bollywood heroines are waiting for the day when they would be approached to star as Rajini’s heroine in any of his future movies. In this backdrop, Anushka’s silence has sent mixed reactions in Kollywood circles.
Anushka was reportedly approached to play Rajini’s heroine in his upcoming film titled Kochadaiyan which would be directed by Rajini’s youngest daughter Soundarya. Though it has been a few days that the talks are on, surprisingly enough, there has been no ‘positive’ response at all from Anushka’s side which has made the producers of Kochadaiyan turn to the likes of Asin.
Billed as a full-length 3-D film, the film would have story, script and dialogues penned by K.S. Ravikumar who would also be supervising the direction. It’s not known whether Asin would replace Anushka or would be starring along side her in the film. Anushka is said to be very busy with her already committed projects in Tamil and Telugu. Irandam Ulagam opposite Arya and Thandavam opposite Vikram are her recently committed Tamil films.
She has also agreed to star opposite Ajith and Karthi in their next films and as such, she doesn’t have any dates to spare for Kochadaiyan in the near future. This is the reason behind her silence so far, it is reliably learnt. There is also the possibility that Anushka might choose Rajini over all the other heroes and tell the producers of those films that she would first finish Rajini’s film and then start work on their films.
In such a scenario, the producers would surely wait for Anushka.
