Sonu Sood turns villian for Rajinikanth's Rana - Sathish - 02-24-2011

With the colossal success of Dabangg, filmmakers and renowned thespians have noticed the villainous swagger that Sonu Sood possesses on screen. One such actor to take notice is superstar Rajinikanth.

According to our sources, after Rajinikanth saw Sonu as Cheddi Singh in Dabangg and Pashupati in the Tamil hit, Arundhati and was very impressed with his negative roles. So, he soon cast him in the much-coveted negative role for his Hindi-Tamil-Telugu trilingual film Rana.

Rana is slated to be a period-action film, based on the lines of the famous Hollywood blockbuster 300. Directed by KS Ravi Kumar, who also made projects like Muthu and Narasimha, the film is to be shot in India and abroad. It will also include foreign technicians.

Hyped at being the most expensive Indian film ever made, the film is being co-produced by Eros International and Ocher Studios, the production house run by Rajinikanth's daughter Soundarya. Deepika Padukone has been drafted as the leading lady for the film, while AR Rahman will compose its music. Ratnavelu of Robot fame will return as cinematographer for the trilingual film.

On being selected as the villain for Rajinikanth's next, Sonu said he felt blessed that a small town boy with no film background will work with the legend that he has grown up idolizing. He also couldn't wait for the camera to roll.

In the meantime, work on the script of Dabangg 2 is underway and production of the film is expected to go on floors by year-end. The sequel is set to have Cheddi's twin avenge his death.
