Every heroine in the country is dying for a chance to work with our Superstar Rajinikanth in his next magnum opus, Ranaa. But Asin seems to be an exception. Having worked with her in Dasavataram, director K. S. Ravikumar was suitably impressed and sent her the script for Ranaa, translated to English for her consideration.
Asin was excited about the script and wanted to know which of the three heroines she was to portray. When Ravikumar informed her that she is to pair up with the middle aged Rajini and that Rekha and Deepika Padukone would pair with the older and the younger Rajini, Asin has refused the role. She said that she would willingly do Deepika’s role but certainly not the one that has been offered to her.
At the recent NDTV awards, Vidya Balan shared the stage with Superstar and expressed an intense desire to work with him. Ravikumar lost no time in showing her the script and she said nothing would make her happier or prouder than to share screen space with the great man, irrespective of the age of the character she was to play. And so it has been finalized that she will pair up with middle – aged Rajini. Lucky woman!
