Katrina Kaif will soon join ranks with Aishwarya and Deepika by romancing Kollywood superstar Rajinikanth on screen. The actor is said to have said yes for Kochadaiyaan.
"It's true. We were very keen on Katrina. Two superstars together from the South and the North would create magic," a very important member of the film's production team revealed to Mumbai Mirror.
"We've been negotiating with her for some time. She is shooting for Yash Chopra, and has assured us of her dates in the next few months," the source was quoted by the tabloid as saying.
"Yes, we are indeed in talks with Katrina and we will let you know soon," confirmed Soundarya to the daily.
Tackling the date trouble
Though it was not easy for Katrina to make space in her date diary, she managed to take out time for Rajini in between her tight schedule for Ek Tha Tiger and SRK's film.

"Katrina, who is busy shooting two back-to-back Yash Raj films - Ek Tha Tiger with Salman Khan, and an untitled one with Shah Rukh Khan - will accommodate Rajinikanth's dates in between her tight schedule. All other portions of the film have been shot, and only the ones with Katrina remain. Her dates will be worked out soon, and the film will then be complete," a member of the unit told the tabloid.
"In Kochadaiyaan, Rajinikanth plays a king, a devotee of Lord Shiva. His love story with Katrina, their songs, will be shot on an epic scale," disclosed a source to the daily.
The film will also have a love song between Rajini and Kat. "Rahman is bringing 130 musicians from Germany to record the background score," the source further revealed.
