Gangs of Wasseypur actress Huma Qureshi has been roped in to play Rajinikanth’s pair in his upcoming film with Ranjith. The makers were earlier in talks with Vidya Balan for this role, but following Vidya’s last-minute exit from the project, they have now chosen Huma for this role.
A source confirms, “Yes, Huma has been signed for this film. She will start shooting for this film from May 28.” The shoot of the film, which is rumoured to be in the gangster genre, will begin on May 28 in Mumbai.
A grand set has been erected for the film there. Last Sunday, May 14, Rajinikanth had participated in a photo shoot for the film.
