Yesteryear Top Heroine for Rajinikanth?

Superstar Rajinikanth currently has Kaala releasing on June 1st and 2.0 which will release later this year and now there is another film which will go on floors the next month. His next film will be directed by Pizza fame Karthik Subbaraj. It will be produced by A Mammoth Production and will be presented by Kalanithi Maran on Sun Pictures Banner. We are told that the makers have approached Simran to be the female lead in the film. Earlier there were names like Nayantara and Trisha, it has to be seen if Simran will be finalized at last. If yes, it will be her first time with the Superstar.
Simran was a Top Hero back in her prime but is now out of form. Karthik Subbaraj who is famous for his 2012 low-budget thriller Pizza which was a commercial success later delivered three flops including his latest film, Mercury. Getting to direct Rajinikanth is the biggest chance for the young director and it has to be seen how he makes use of this opportunity. On the other side, Rajinikanth recently announced a foray into politics. He is looking to exploit the Vacuum in Tamil Nadu Political Space post the sudden demise of Former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa.
