Malavika Mohanan & Nawazuddin Siddiqui in Rajnikanth’s next

Malavika Mohanan made her dream debut opposite Ishaan Khattar with Majid Majidi’s Beyond The Clouds earlier this year. And while the actress hasn’t made any announcements about her next Bollywood film, she’s been roped in to play the lead opposite megastar Rajnikanth in Karthik Subbaraj’s next Tamil film. The film will also mark the Tamil debut of Nawazuddin Siddiqui who will play a crucial role in it.

“Malavika makes her debut in this lavishly-mounted Tamil production, which also features Vijay Setupati. Unlike her character from the Dhobi Ghat in Majidi’s film, she will be seen in a glamourous avatar in this light-hearted action-drama, one of the most expensive films ever made in Tamil.”

“The team will be shooting in Dehradun, Coonoor and Chennai during the second schedule. Malavika and Rajini will also film a romantic song in Europe next month,” the source added.
