Rajnikanth‘s Raana has been discussed by both Rajnikanth and K.S Ravikumar after he returned from Singapore. Fans want to see the Superstar to confirm that he has been cured of his illness. However, things are going pretty with Raana which may be expected to go on floors in this October.
Now, though October seems too close, K.S Ravikumar has been busy in the casting of heroines in Raana. There will be about seven heroines. Rekha and Madhuri Dixit had already walked out. The latter said that she would not like to don the role of Rajnikanth‘s sister but would like some better role.
Though there will be seven heroines, all of them will be in pivotal roles but Rajnikanth will be paired with only three, since he dons a triple role in the film. K.S Ravikumar had said that only Deepika Padukone was blocked. Later, Anushka was confirmed.
But the latest buzz is that Ileana, who is in Shankar directed Nanban with Vijay, Jeeva and Srikanth, will play the second heroine in Raana. So, it looks like Ileana, Anushka and Deepika Padukone will play the top three roles.
Though they are looking for powerful actresses in the other four roles, even most of the old actresses have backed out. If all goes as planned, Superstar Rajnikanth may be shooting for Raana within a month or two.
