With Rajini’s Rana in limbo,Deepika moves on to newer films

Even as speculations don't seem to be subside, what with rumour catching on heat that Rajinikanth starrer Rana has been shelved, the film's other cast member stay on to be clueless about the film's fate. Deepika Padukone, one of the leading ladies of the film, is going through the same predicament as she has started shooting for many of her upcoming films. However Rana doesn't figure anywhere in her agenda.

"Ever since Rajinikanth's health scare early this year resulted in the shooting of Rana being aborted, there has been constant speculation on the film's fate. While earlier there were talks of the film being resumed in August, none of it really happened. Post that every passing month comes with the hope of Rana coming back on floors but the fact is that the film is pretty much on a backburner", informs a source.

From Bollywood, the film sees Deepika Padukone and Sonu Sood as the two imports for this mega film that requires Rajinikanth to be in a great shape physically. However, since the superstar is still recovering, many around him have suggested that he begin work on some other film which isn't as intense as Rana.

"Yes, of late there have been talks of Rajini Sir doing another film. Since makers haven't asked for Deepika's dates either, it is more or less certain that even if Rana hasn't been shelved, it won't resume soon", the source confirms.

Resultantly, Deepika has already moved on to other projects. While she went all out for the promotional shoot of Desi Boyz by lending the film the required dates, she is also gearing up to begin work on Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani with Ranbir Kapoor. The young woman, who has earlier shot for a song from the film, further confirms that Rana doesn't feature in her radar for near future at the least.

"Honestly, even I haven't heard from the makers of Rana about the future plans", admits Deepika, "Last I heard was about Rajini Sir recovering and resting but that's about it. Even I am waiting to know about the future plans for the film. Having said that, there are no dates of mine that have been blocked for future. Let's see how it goes from here."

Well, here is hoping that Deepika hasn't just lost an opportunity of a lifetime to feature with someone as big a superstar as Rajni!
