The news about director Pa. Ranjith’s next flick also goes with Superstar Rajini Kanth is an old one. But the Bollywood ace actress Vidya Balan is going to be roped in, as the female lead is the new one. Sources of Kollywood have confirmed this news strongly as the talks have been initiated with Vidya this week and the actress is expected to give her nod at any moment it seems.
Since the Superstar Rajini and the Super Director Shankar’s Combo of 2.0 got into the controversy of heroine (the actress Amy Jackson is a strong supporter of PETA, the animal welfare NGO, which has got unanimous opposition of Tamil youngsters at the time of Jallikattu agitation in January), Rajini is more conscious on choosing his pair as equal as to the subject.

Actually, Vidya Balan was approached by the team for the film Kapali itself. Due to the clashes of her scheduled dates, Radhika Apte had got the chance by that time.
Though the secrecy of the film tightly maintained by the director and the crew, the outflow of this news has given clues to the character and the makeover of Superstar. The kollywood reporters strongly predict that in this film also Rajini will do an old age role as the choice of the heroine reflects in that way.
