Mumbai: After Aishwarya Rai raked in millions by starring opposite the southern sensation Rajnikanth, it’s Deepika Padukone who is gearing up to follow suit. The stunning lass has been offered a film opposite the superstar and she is doing everything to make it work. As per the buzz, Deepika has a jam-packed schedule but the actress is leaving no stone unturned to make some time to work along Rajnikanth.

Confirming the news a source said, "Deepika has been offered the film and a meeting with its producers also went off well. The film has Rajnikanth in a double role. The makers felt that Deepika was perfect for the lead role and that she would fit the character very well. Unfortunately, the producers of the film want to take it on floors this year and Deepika has her hands full with Aarakshan, Desi Boys and a new film with Saif Ali khan to be directed by Homi Adajania apart from a few other projects.”

However as of now, Deepika is trying hard to adjust her dates so she doesn`t miss out on a once in a lifetime opportunity to work with Rajni.

Talking to a news daily, Deepika said, "I am really honoured to be approached to act with Rajnikanth."

The actress`s spokesperson however was quick to add, "We have been approached but it is too early to talk about it. We need to work on dates as many films are in combination with a lot of senior actors. It is not an easy decision. Of course we would like to be part of Rajnikanth`s film. It is a huge honour."
