Is Rana the rechristened talkie version of Sultan the warrior? Or is it not? Fans of Rajinikanth who went gaga over the announcement made by Rajinikanth himself on his next film Rana had of late been confused about the film.
However, there is no room for confusion. While Ocher Studios and Eros International have already denied connections with Sultan the Warrior, the confirmation comes from some other source too. Weeks before Rathnavelu Raman or Randy, the popular cinematographer of Endhiran had already posted information about the new film on his Facebook page.
He was quite happy to work for Rajinikanth’s next film and announced the director as KS Ravikumar. Further, sources reveal that along with KS Ravikumar, Antony and Rajeevan will be part of the crew for Editing and Art Direction respectively.
AR Rahman will play the music and Bollywood beauty sultan toto Deepika Padukone who expressed willingness to star with the superstar will be the heroine of the film, say sources. So, Raanaa is the next film of Superstar Rajinikanth which will be directed by KS Ravikumar.
It is not Sultan the Warrior and Rana is a big budget film which will be made in a lavish scale with the best of technicians. Baba Counting Starts for the next Rajinikanth release which the Superstar’s fans eagerly have started expecting.
There is one more significance in Rajinikanth’s films than what is actually conspicuous. We might even wonder who is the director, actor, when the film releases, what is the budget, how much Rajinikanth is paid, who the heroine is but what is most significant than all these is who will play the baddie in any Rajinikanth’s film.
It all started with Sathyaraj’s role in Mr. Bharath, Raghuvaran’s role in Baadshah, Ramya Krishnan as Nilambari in Padaiyappa, Suman in Sivaji and Danny Denzongpa in Endhiran or Rajinikanth himself against himself.
The villain has to equal the magnificence and majestic qualities of Thalaivar Superstar Rajinikanth. The villain must challenge the caliber of Rajinikanth and must be powerful enough to make the audience boo him off.
Now, the villain for the latest Thalaivar film Rana is Sonu Sood who gave power packed performances in Chandramukhi and Arundhathi. The villain actor has acted in many films previously in both Kollywood and Tollywood.
This film produced by Soundarya Rajinikanth has part-animated version, as reported and Rajinikanth plays three roles in the film. This part-period film will be the next big blockbuster of Rajinikanth since it is directed by KS Ravikumar.
