Eros International Media Ltd (Eros International), India's largest integrated film studio is producing Rajinikanth's RANA with music by AR Rahman and Directed by K.S. Ravikumar. The shooting of this film has been delayed as Rajinikanth became unwell, after the start of the shooting of the film.
Speaking on the resumption of the shooting, Director Mr. K.S Ravikumar said, 'Though Rajinikanth has recovered fully well and is keen to start shooting, we have delayed the start of the shooting. We don't want to rush him to start the film shooting immediately, as the film has Rajini playing triple role and has some stunning stunt sequences.
Mr. Sunil Lulla, Managing Director, Eros International Media Ltd added, 'It is a proud project for us and we don't mind waiting to be a part of this ambitious project with Rajinikanth as we want him to rest for some more time. Hence we have decided to take the decision on the shooting dates in December 2011.'
Announced earlier this year, RANA is a live action magnum opus with Rajinikanth playing triple role and will be released in Tamil, Hindi and Telugu. Along with Rajini, the film stars Deepika Padukone and Sonu Sood.
The music for the film is being scored by A R Rahman, director of photography Ratnavelu. The technical director is Soundarya Rajnikanth, of Ocher Visual effects UK, a subsidiary of Ocher Studios Pvt Limited, and Charles Darby of Eyeqube Studios, renowned visual effects luminary and an Emmy award winner, is the creative and special effects director on the film.
Eros International along with NextGen Films, will produce the film through RANA Production Ltd, UK.
