Pa. Ranjith, who has become the most-pronounced film-maker in Kollywood in the past few months thanks to him landing up the ‘offer of his life’ by getting to direct superstar Rajinikanth in Kabali, is said to be on the look-out for an award-winning actress to play the second heroine in the film.
Rajini took part in the film’s photo-shoot held a few days back. As per the script, Rajini essays the role of a Don. Some photos from the photo-shoot were leaked on the Net which didn’t go down well with the film’s crew which took extreme precautions to avoid it.
Bollywood’s Radhika Apte plays Rajini’s heroine in the film but it is said that as per the script, there is a second heroine in the film who hasn’t yet been finalized.
Dhansika, ‘Attakathi’ Dinesh and ‘Madras’ Kalaiyarasan are part of the film’s cast. Upcoming music director Santhosh Narayanan gets to score the music of a Rajini-starrer for the first time in his career. Ranjith is now said to be on the look-out for a popular, award-winning heroine (Vidya Balan?) to play Rajini’s second heroine in the film.
As it is a significant role, Ranjith is taking his time to finalize the actress for this role. It is said that he is in talks with leading Bollywood and Tollywood actresses to finalize an actress soon.
