The living legends of Tamil cinema Superstar Rajinikanth and Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan's films that they were planning to start have been delayed.

The shoot of Rajinikanth's , KS Ravikumar directed Rana, a period drama in which Rajinikanth plays triple roles was to start on April 18, but has now been postponed.

The reason given out by the producers Eros International and Soundarya Rajinikanth is that a huge set is being erected at AVM Studios, and it's taking time.

Since the film is period drama different sets have to be created, which is time consuming.

Meanwhile the buzz is that Kamal Haasan's Viswaroopam directed by Selvaraghavan which was to start today (April 20), has been delayed as the US Consulate has refused Visa's to the cast and crew.

There is no official confirmation but the rumour is that since the film is based on "terrorism" an ugly word for American authorities, the visa has been denied.

At the same time director Selvaraghavan is now in Kannur in Kerala shooting with his brother Dhanush for UTV's Irandam Ulagam.
