Mumbai : According to reports from Bollywood, the makers of Superstar Rajinikanth's upcoming film with director Ranjith have recently met Huma Qureshi and narrated her the script to know whether she would be interested in playing the female lead.
Sources say that Ranjith wants someone who can deliver powerful performance and he is also in talks with few other interesting names in Bollywood.
Previously, Huma Qureshi was supposed to play the female lead in Thala Ajith's Billa 2 but due to unavailability of dates, she was replaced by Parvathy Omanakuttan.
It is rather interesting to note that for his previous film 'Kabali', Ranjith preferred Radhika Apte, an unusual choice for a Rajinikanth starrer but post-release, her performance was widely appreciated. To be produced by Superstar Rajinikanth's son-in-law Dhanush, Santhosh Narayanan will be scoring the music for the film, which is said to be set in Mumbai backdrop.
Sources say that a photo shoot session with Rajinikanth has recently happened in Chennai to design the first look poster of this yet-untitled film.
