Some reports say that Bollywood beauty Vidya Balan is a strong contender to bag the film, but there are also reports that Trisha Krishan is hot favourite to sign the movie. Earlier, it was speculated that Amala Paul was likely to pair up with Rajinikanth. She shares a good relationship with Dhanush after working with in him in his home productions like “Velaiyilla Pattathari” and “Amma Kanakku” and this factor helped her bag the flick.
However, we have heard that the team is busy finalising the cast of the film, and interestingly, they are in talks with Bollywood actress Vidya Balan to play the female lead in the film.
Earlier too, there were reports that Vidya Balan had been approached for Kabali, before Radhika Apte was finalised as the female lead. This time, says a source in the know, “The makers of the film met Vidya Balan recently, and have finalised her as the lead.
However, they are still working on the dates, and only then the official agreement would be signed.” Produced by Dhanush, the rest of the cast for the film, which many speculate could be the sequel to Kabali, is yet to be decided.
