After Aishwarya Rai and Deepika Padukone, now it is the turn of the ravishing Katrina Kaif to rub shoulders with the giant of Indian cinema Mr. Rajinikanth. Talks are on between the makers of the Rajinikanth’s upcoming ‘Kochadaiyan’ to rope in Katrina in the lead female role and the actress, too, is pretty gung ho about the project. After all, who won’t like to work opposite South India’s demigod? Katrina is currently sorting out her dates and if all goes well then we will soon see the veteran Rajini romance the young, sizzling Chikni Chameli of Bollywood.
While currently, things are only in the talking process, it is unlikely that Salman’s ex would let go of such a big opportunity of working opposite an actor of such great stature. ‘Kochadaiyan’ means ‘king with long hairs’. Rajinikanth shall be essaying the character of a long-haired emperor who is an ardent devotee of Lord Shiva in the film that will be directed by Rajini’s daughter Soundarya.
Talking of Katrina, Soundarya has stated, “I met Katrina Kaif in person some time ago. She was very excited that it was a Rajinikanth film and sounded very upbeat and positive about it. However, we are still in the process of working out her dates as she’s busy with her other projects.”
Katty is presently occupied with the shoot of ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ (where she is paired opposite her ex lover Salman Khan) and an untitled Yash Chopra film opposite Shahrukh Khan. Soundarya is confident of roping in Katrina since the latter seemed extremely fascinated by the plot & theme of the film which will be set up on a very colossal scale. Besides, the music of the film shall be composed by none other than AR Rahman whose global popularity has escalated by several notches since his Oscar triumph.
Rajinikanth’s last release ‘Endhiran’ was a mega hit and saw him teaming up with Aishwarya Rai. His ‘Rana’, which is still on the pipeline, will witness him romancing the leggy Deepika Padukone. Meanwhile, viewers can look forward to Rajini-Katrina saga assuming Kat does give her nod to the project.
