Soundarya Rajinikanth has confirmed that it will be Deepika Padukone pairing up with her dad Rajinikanth in Kochadaiyaan. There were rumors that Katrina Kaif would play the female lead in this film but now the role has gone to Deepika.
Interestingly, Deepika was roped in for Rana last year but the project was halted after Rajini's health conditions deteriorated. He was later hospitalized and regained his health, it is worth mentioning here.
Rana has now been put on hold and Soundarya Rajinikanth decided to direct Kochadaiyaan with her dad playing the lead role. KS Ravi Kumar, the director of Rana, is penning the story, screenplay and dialogues for this film.
