Deepika moves on with other films keeping ‘Rana’ for hold

After Rajinikanth’s health issues started, the film ‘Rana’ featuring Rajinikanth and Deepika Padukone, the film has gone in to a pause, or probably is shelved,

Non of the crew or cast have idea about when will the film start or if it will start again or not, and so does Deepika Padukone,

Source said,

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,

Rana features Sonu Sood along with Deepika Padukone and Rajinikanth as one of the important part of the story, to start the film again Rajinikanth requires to be in a great shape physically. Till he recovers many around him have suggested to start with other films 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,

Deepika also has moved on to other films now when her Desi Boyz promotions are over, she has given dates to ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ with Ranbir Kapoor. She also said that for now ‘Rana’ doesnt fit in to her schedule in near future,

Deepika said,

Honestly, even I haven’t heard from the makers of Rana about the future plans, 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.
