The much talked about project down south starring Rajinikanth and Sonakshi Sinha in the lead roles will take off in May, confirm the sources.
Sonakshi Sinha, who has now left to attend the IIFA awards at Tampa Baby this year, will soon return to commence shooting for the project.
“Sonakshi has just left for IIFA and post the event she would be taking an overseas holiday. Once back, she would begin shooting for this Tamil film with Rajinikanth” confirmed a source close to the actress.
Rajinikanth is awaiting the release of his magnum opus Kochadaiiyaan, that stars Deepika Padukone as the female lead.
“Very few people in the industry get an opportunity to do a film with Rajinikanth. If I had to make a debut in South, it had to be something as big as this. I can’t wait to begin shooting for him in May” said Sonakshi.
The film that is yet to be untitled will be directed by ace director of Tamil, K S Ravichandran and bears a storyline of different generations and a plot travelling in time back and forth. The story completely justifies the age gap between Rajini and Sonakshi, say the film crew sources.
“It is a new language, new people and new industry. Yes, the film is basically in Tamil and it is going to be a new experience. I believe they would be releasing the film in Hindi as well” Sonakshi added.
It would be interesting to see a film that actually justifies the huge age gap between both stars!
