Rajinikanth to romance Madhuri Dixit-Nene in Shankar’s next

After sharing screen space with leggy lass Deepika Padukone in Kochadaiyaan, the Superstar will now romance the evergreen Bollywood beauty Mads

Rajinikanth has romanced a bevy of beauties on screen – from Sridevi to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Deepika Padukone. But here comes a filmi pairing that’s sure to set the box office afire.

Top director Shankar, known for his larger-than-life productions, has signed up Rajinikanth for his next and, even better, got Madhuri Dixit-Nene to be his leading lady.

The yet-untitled film will, we hear, be the story of a one-man crusade to save the world. Rajini will be seen in a full-on action role with a soft romantic story running parallel. Madhuri, sources tell us, will play a jazz ballet artiste.

Fans of both these top stars are going to be one thrilled lot, when this film hits the screens early in 2014. It is going to be shot in several international locales and the music is by AR Rahman. Talk about a star-studded venture!
