Reports are doing the rounds on the internet that the Bollywood actor Huma Qureshi has been paired opposite superstar Rajinikanth in his next. 

After the blockbuster success of Kollywood film Kabali, and gearing up for the release of his next, 2.0 alongside Bollywood action hero Akshay Kumar, Rajini will soon start the shoot for his next with Kabali director Pa Ranjith’s untitled on May 28.  

It is being reported that after sharing screen space with the likes of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Sonakshi Sinha and Radhika Apte, his next co-star will be Huma Qureshi.

Huma will be playing the 66-year-old superstar's love interest in the film. Rajini, who met his fans after eight years at Raghavendra Mandapam in Chennai on 15th May, confirmed that his next film with Pa Ranjith will roll from May 28. 


According to official statement, “The filmmakers were looking for someone with a strong screen presence as it’s a performance oriented role. She is really excited. They start shooting in Mumbai from May 28 and Huma will start prep soon.” With movies like Gangs of Wasseypur, Dedh Ishqiya, Huma Qureshi has already wooed the audience with her mind blowing performances. It would be interesting to watch her act alongside Thalaivar. 

To be produced by Dhanush's Wunderbar Films, the untitled film has music by Santhosh Narayanan of Kabali fame.

The film is scheduled to go on floors by the end of this month.
