With Rajnikanth’s hospitalization, there have been many rumors surrounding the Rajnikanth, Deepika Padukone film Rana. One of the biggest was that the film was going to be shelved. However, this is totally false. We now have official confirmation that the film is on from the director himself.
In a statement director K S Ravikumar cleared up all the misconceptions. “We have been getting some disturbing feedback about the film Rana being cancelled. This, we would like to ascertain is a totally false newscast. It is natural for people to fall ill and as our leading star is now not so well, we feel unpleasant about these rumours confirming the film being dropped. Rana is Superstar Rajini Sir’s dream project and his brain child and hence he is very much keen on undertaking it and completing it successfully. His ill health might have caused a minor glitch initially in our shooting plans but Rajini sir is all positive about recovering and getting back into action. Moreover we have Deepika Padukone’s dates only from post July. Any and every news cast that you might have witnessed in any media confirming the project dropped is, we are sorry to state, completely false. The shoot is just postponed temporarily awaiting his complete and total recovery. Subsequently he is now on his way towards a speedy recovery and we are now hopeful of releasing Rana the following year (2012).
Thanks and Regards
Rana is an epic project set in the 17th century, which will see Rajnikanth in 3 different roles. We will keep you in the know about this exciting film so stay tuned for more!
