Soon after Sonakshi Sinha was finalised opposite Rajinikanth in K Ravikumar’s next film, it was reported that Southern superstar was uncomfortable romancing the young actress.
And, it was not her age but Rajinikanth’s closeness to her father Shatrughan Sinha, that was the cause of discomfort.
Shatrughan Sinha and Rajinikanth have been friends since they acted together in KC Bokadia’s Asli Naqli in 1986.
Following that, the hustle began to bring another actress on board. Several other actresses like Nayantara were apparently being considered.
