Now sources from Mumbai tell us that negotiations with Asin are in progress over dates. The 3D period flick will be directed by Soundarya Ashwin, the younger daughter of Rajini. For K. S Ravikumar who’s supervising the project, Asin has always been top priority to co star with Rajini.
Even if the Ghajini star wants to make a comeback with a Rajini starrer, it remains uncertain whether she would make it toKochadayaan.
The main obstacle is the Hindu Makkal Katchi. The moral police has issued a statement that at a time when the Mullaperiyar Dam row is escalating, ‘Rajini sir’ choosing an actress from Kerala for his film is unacceptable.
Says Kannan, organising secretary of HMK, “One may recall Asin’s anti-Tamil stand when she visited Sri Lanka a few years back. So, Rajinikanth should not accept Asin, an actress from Kerala, at a juncture when the Mullaperiyar Dam issue is in a highly volatile stage”.
Soundarya says “I have no clue what they are talking about! We have not tried contacting Asin for any role inKochadayaan.”
The party has also resolved to protest in front of Rajini’s house and at the shooting locations if Rajini does not heed their request.
