It is a classic clash in Kollywood between the reigning queens- Asin, Trisha and Nayantara to be Rajnikanth’s item girl for Sivaji!

Shankar in a hush-hush operation had approached all the three girls to do this item number with the superstar which is also his introductory song.

Trisha who is shooting for Selvaraghavan’s Telugu film in Hyderabad is reported to have politely refused as her biggest ambition is to be Rajni’s heroine in one of his future projects.

That leaves Asin and Nayantara in the race. The peppy fast number tuned by A.R.Rahman was played to both the actresses and the girls are very keen to shake a leg with the ultimate superstar of Indian cinema.

And according to industry buzz, Sivaji will open with this song and the audience are sure going to go ga-ga over this number.

Remember that some years back Shankar had picturised “Urvasi.,..Urvasi…” song from Kathalan as the opening scene and in Boys four minutes after the film starts, there was that hit number Enakkoru Boyfriend Venama...

And the director in an interview was quoted saying that “it is always the first song in the film that captures the attention of the viewers”.

There were some reports that there will not be an introductory song sequence for Rajnikanth in Sivaji. However, Rajnikanth without an introductory song is like “Idly without Sambar”!

It seems Shankar and Rahman finally sat together to work on this mind-blowing opening song which is sure to top the charts. And the heroine who does this number with Rajni is sure to get a tremendous reach with the masses.

Nayantara who already shares a great rapport with the superstar seems to be the front runner as the pair was a hit in Chandramukhi. But Asin is not far behind as she wants to be a part of a landmark film called Sivaji at any cost!
