Guess who has signed on to play Rajinikanth’s lead in Kochadaiyaan. Nopes. Not Katrina Kaif, as was reported earlier. It’s Deepika Padukone! A tweet by Soundarya Ashwin Rajinikanth says, “Guys. Deepika padukone confirmed to play appa s pair in Kochadaiyaan 🙂 great to have you back with us @deepikapadukone :):) big hug!” So, is this Dippy’s way of giving it back to Katrina who had apparently snatched her then boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor? We wonder. But it’s good going for Deepika who now has two films with Rajinikanth – Rana and Kochadaiyaan. No wonder she has got busy and is not interested in her toy boys (read Sidhartha Mallya) any more!
