Actress Deepika Padukone, who forayed into Hollywood with XXX: The Return of Xander Cage, made her Tamil debut in 2014 with Kochadaiyaan, India’s first photo-realistic motion capture film, directed by Soundarya Rajinikanth.
Now, according to recent reports, Deepika Padukone might team up with Rajinikanth yet again! The latter is doing his second film with director Pa Ranjith, which is bankrolled by Dhanush’s Wunderbar Films. We hear that Deepika has been approached to play the female lead in the film, which is set in Mumbai. Earlier, it was said that Vidya Balan was the chosen one. However, an official announcement is still awaited.
Shooting of this yet-to-be-titled film is expected to go on floors on April 14, after Rajinikanth wraps up shooting for 2.0. The pre-production work of this untitled film is currently in progress at a brisk pace in Chennai.
