And if recent reports are to believed, Vidya Balan has been finalised as the leading heroine of Rajinikanth in the yet-to-be-titled film.
Vidya Balan confirmed the news at a book launch in Mumbai this afternoon. The film also marks her Tamil debut.
An official confirmation on this is expected to be announced in next two days.
