Actress Khushbu Sundar might land a pivotal role in superstar Rajinikanth's yet-untitled next outing, to be directed by Kabali fame Pa. Ranjith, a source said.
Khushbhu and Rajinikanth, in their heyday, have starred in Tamil films such as Mannan, Pandian and Annamalai.
"It's true that Khushbhu is being considered for one of the leading roles. The makers have even initiated talks. However, she hasn't officially signed the project yet. One of the reasons being a Telugu project with Pawan Kalyan and she fears the dates for the both the projects will clash," the source told.
To be produced by Dhanush, the project is expected to roll from May.
Tipped to be a story set against Mumbai backdrop, the makers are in talks with Vidya Balan for the leading lady's role.
