Katrina Kaif has bagged the coveted role opposite southern legend Rajinikanth in Kochadaiyaan, being directed by none other than his daughter, Soundarya.
“It’s true. We were very keen on Katrina. Two superstars together from the South and the North would create magic,” a very important member of the film’s production team revealed to Mumbai Mirror. “We’ve been negotiating with her for some time. She is shooting for Yash Chopra, and has assured us of her dates in the next few months.”
When contacted, Soundarya confirmed the developments, saying, “Yes, we are indeed in talks with Katrina and we will let you know soon.”
Katrina, who is busy shooting two back-to-back Yash Raj films – Ek Tha Tiger with Salman Khan, and an untitled one with Shah Rukh Khan – will accommodate Rajinikanth’s dates in between her tight schedule. All other portions of the film have been shot, and only the ones with Katrina remain. Her dates will be worked out soon, and the film will then be complete, the member said.
“In Kochadaiyaan, Rajinikanth plays a king, a devotee of Lord Shiva. His love story with Katrina, their songs, will be shot on an epic scale,” disclosed a very reliable source. A R Rahman, who is known to take his time over scores, has recorded most of the music, including the love song to be filmed on Rajinikanth and Katrina. “Rahman is bringing 130 musicians from Germany to record the background score,” the source further revealed.
As for Katrina, it will be tough but she really wanted to work with Rajinikanth for the longest possible time, according to a friend.
