Even as superstar Rajinikanth is under complete rest, he is said to be meeting K.S. Ravikumar on a daily basis to spruce up the script and dialogues of his upcoming film Rana. Sources close to Rajini and Ravikumar say that the duo has been into some ‘serious’ discussion about the screenplay and the dialogues, cast, etc.
It was already reported that Rajini plays three roles in the film. Contrary to what was decided earlier, it now turns out that Rajini might have only two heroines and not three. While Bollywood’s Deepika Padukone has already been signed up, it appears that Telugu hottie Ileana might soon be part of the film as the second heroine. The ‘third Rajini’ in the film won’t have any heroine, it is learnt.
There might be a change of the start of the schedule, it is further informed. Instead of starting the shooting schedule in the first week of October, Rajini might delay it further and commence it by end-October or early November. Dhanush, Rajini’s son-in-law, informed this to newspersons recently. Work is on to erect huge palace-looking sets at Chennai’s AVM studios and Hyderabad’s Ramojirao Film City for the film’s shooting.
As the film’s script is a period-type one, the sets are erected in a grand manner befitting a film of this kind. A.R. Rahman, who proclaimed some time back that he too was eagerly awaiting Rajini’s return to action, scores the music for the film. The film’s budget is tentatively planned at Rs.55 crores but is likely to cross Rs.100 crores by the time the film is wrapped up next year!
