Speculations are rife over Rajini’s next move or should we say movie. The grapevine is abuzz with rumors of all sorts, first it was the Kamal-Mani-Rajini combo that was talked about but later fizzled out. Then when Rajini came out openly denying any decision yet on his next venture things calmed down a bit.
Now things seem to be taking a different turn, Pyramid Saimira the acquisition giant has now bagged the rights of Rajkumar Santoshi’s Halla Bol which stars Ajay Devgan and Vidya Balan in the lead. This film is loosely based on the rise of a small town youth to superstardom and how an incident in his life makes him come to terms with his true self, which was lost in its climb to stardom.
Pyramid Saimira have acquired the remake rights to this movie and talks are abound that Rajini would be apt for the role played by Ajay Devgan. Pyramid is in fact in talks with Rajini to star in this movie. The film’s financial advisor Sanjay Bhandari said “Pyramid Saimira is our business partner and they had expressed their desire to remake this movie in Tamil and have approached Rajini to play the lead.” Rajkumar Santoshi was earlier in talks with Rajini to play the role of Ravana in his next venture Ramayana, his magnum opus touted to be the most expensive Indian film ever made, which Rajini eventually turned down and Prakash Raj was offered the role. Let us hope that this one ends up being true but to guess whether Rajini would act in a role essayed by Ajay Devgan with negative shades and that too much after this well publicized venture hits the screens is a tall order in itself.
