Nayanthara in Kuselan

News about the superstar’s next venture, Kuselan, is catching up like wildfire. And the latest on this front is that the current heartthrob Nayanthara has been approached to play the lady lead for super star. While lead roles are mostly the director’s choice, the entire production unit of Kuselan feels that Nayanthara would be the best bet for their project. with the actress, though she is yet to sign the dotted lines; however, it is expected that she may do so.

The movie Kuselan movie will be remake of Sreenivasan`s Malayalam super hit Katha Parayumbol and is going to be directed by P. Vasu. Kavithalaya and Seven Arts are jointly producing the film in Tamil. Since the movie is going to be a bi-lingual with Kuselan being made in both Tamil and Telugu, Ileana was approched to play the role
opposite to Superstar Rajinikanth as director felt she would suit the role in both the languages for this movie. Sources has it that the actress was not satisfied and has refused to do the movie. Hence director P.Vasu has zeroed in on Nayantara to do the movie and has asked for her call sheet. If Nayan agrees to the movie with Rajini, she will be hitting a hatrick with the superstar as this will be her third movie after Chandramukhi and Shivaji.

Rajinikanth will finish this movie before he starts shooting for Robot. P. Vasu and Rajni had earlier joined hands to give the super hit movie Chandramukhi which also was a Malayalam remake. The movie will be made in Tamil and Telugu simultaneously and producer C Ashwini Dutt will be producing the Telugu version of Rajnikant’s forthcoming film under his Vyjayanthi Movies banner.

As this movie is about an actor, director P. Vasu intends to rope in about 20 actors and actresses for guest appearances. When questioned about this, P.Vasu said, “We have approached twenty stars but their participation will depend on their availability.” As Balachander, the producer of Kuselan is the guru of Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan and director P.Vasu is considered to be close to both of them. Will this
association pave way for a guest appearance by Kamal in Kuselan? Moreover, the fans are also craving to see both the stars on screen for a long time.
