There were reports in the media that top Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone will be paired opposite Superstar Rajinikanth in Pa Ranjith directed film.

But the Kabali director has dismissed the news as mere rumor and says that there is no truth in this fake news! It is very normal for media to speculate and hype the project of big stars by coming out with news that some top heroine from Bollywood is being signed up.

What they fail to realize is that none of the top Bollywood heroines are keen to come down and do films down south. Only girls who are out-of-work in Hindi films give it a try. Recently Kajol who is completely out of mainstream Bollywood films is doing a role in VIP-2. And Aditi Rao Hydari who has no work in the North has completed Mani Ratnam's film.

To be produced by Dhanush’s Wunderbar Films, this Ranjith directed film is likely to be shot in Mumbai backdrop, says a source close to the team. After shooting the last song of ‘2.O’, Rajinikanth will be commencing the shoot of Ranjith’s film from May.
