Rajnikanth,Aishwarya Rai, Sonakshi Sinha Before Kabali and Radhika Apte, Rajinikanth shared the screen with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Sonakshi Sinha and other Bollywood leading ladies.

Kabali and Rajinikanth are all set to scorch the screens again. Releasing on July 22, Kabali will see Rajinikanth paired with Radhika Apte. Considering that it’s going to be a Thalaivaa film, we won’t be surprised if the film literally creates a storm, considering that the actor has on screen abilities to unleash a cyclone by circling his foot.


Radhika, like every other leading lady who has worked with Rajinikanth, is dazzled. “He is extremely simple, humble and hardworking. He is a gem of a person. Very inspiring,” Apte had said about her Kabali co-star in an earlier interview to The Indian Express.

The highly specialised 3D film Kochadaiiyaan had hit the theatres in 2014. The technology which was used in the Indian animation film were also used in popular Hollywood films such as Avatar and The Adventures of Tintin. Rajnikanth often felt awkward while romancing with Deepika Padukone, her daughter Soundarya Rajnikanth Ashwin told The Indian Express previously.

Despite the hatke storyline and age difference between the two actors, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Rajinikanth were able to pull off a great chemistry in the film. The film got quite popular for its usage of graphics.

Since Sonakshi Sinha had been childhood friends with Rajinikanth’s daughters, the actor felt quite nervous to romance her on-screen, he admitted in an interview with CNN-IBN.

Sridevi, Rajnikanth

Sridevi had done various regional films with Rajnikanth such as Chor Ke Ghar Chorni, Farishtay and Chaalbaaz to name a few. The actress was last seen in English Vinglish in 2012.
