Kamal Haasan still keen on casting Sonakshi for Vishwaroopam

It seems the saga of Sonakshi Sinha's proposed project with the mighty Kamal Haasan is far from over. Though the delay in the project has forced Sonakshi out, the indefatigable maestro of makeovers, AKA Kamal Haasan, has his heart and mind set on Sonakshi. Feelers after feelers are apparently being sent to Sonakshi and her father Shatrughan Sinha.

Says a source, "Now that Kamal Haasan has taken over the direction of the project it is more imperative than ever that he gets his first choice for the leading lady, and that's Sonakshi. The role was written with her in mind."

But despite the legendary actor's embarrassing persistence Sonakshi is unable to accommodate the project.

Says a source very close to Sonakshi, "The dates for Vishwaroopam were shifted from June. Sonakshi has allotted her dates to Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Prabhu Deva for Rowdy Rathore. This will go on through August. Then in September she does another schedule of Shrish Kunder's Joker. Vishwaroopam was supposed to start rolling in May-June. It has still not taken off. There is no way she can accommodate Kamalji."

Apparently, Sonakshi has been wondering why her presence in the film is so important.
Says a source, "It's a wonderful role and it suits Sonakshi. Kamal Haasan wants Vishwaroopam to compete at the box office with Rajnikanth's Rana."

In the two lavish projects set in two continents, the two Tamil superstars share screen space with the two Bollywood beauties Deepika Padukone and Sonakshi.

Interestingly both Rana and Vishwaroopam got delayed due to various reasons and are now expected to start and be completed at about the same time. Provided Kamal Haasan finds his leading lady. According to a source it would have to be a 20-something Bollywood listers... "To vie for eyeballs with arch-rival Rajini's Rana where Rajini romances Deepika," says the source.

Kamal Haasan has still not given up. Sonakshi just may melt under the persuasive powers of the Tamil maestro whom no one says 'no' to.
