Bollywood’s Vidya Balan, who hails from Palakkad in Kerala, is the latest addition to superstar Rajni’s upcoming film ‘Raana’ as one of the three heroines opposite him, reports said.
Reports also say that Rajnikanth plays triple roles in the film as three brothers. While Rekha, the aging Bollywood legend, is said to have consented to play the lead role opposite the eldest Rajni, Vidya would be playing the lead to the second brother while the dazzling Deepika Padukone has already been signed up to play the lead opposite the ‘youngest’ Rajni.
Asin, when offered the role, is said to have refused the offer saying that she would love to play only the role offered to Deepika Padukone. Vidya Balan, who shared the dais with Rajni at an awards function in Mumbai recently, had said that she couldn’t believe that she was standing on the same stage with Rajni.
Vidya, who paid obeisance to Rajni at the said function, couldn’t believe her ears when she heard the offer and immediately agreed to do the film!
