Mumbai: Keeping Rajini`s health in mind, producers are reportedly preparing another less strenuous project for the superstar.

The superstar’s dream project ‘Rana’ is expected to be shelved taking Rajini’s frail health into consideration. The buzz around ‘Rana’ has been immense. The mega project which was being modeled as an Indian version of `Gladiator` required Rajinikanth to perform dangerous stunts and which is why the producers chose not to mess with his health.

According to sources, the film`s producers are unsure if the superstar will be able to take on the physical exertions that `Rana` expects from its protagonist.

While Rajinikant`s doctors keep advising him for more rest, the fate of ‘Rana’ looks quite bleak at least as of now.

Sources, however say that the film might be shelved for the moment for a less strenuous action film with the actor.

The new film, according to a source, is now being worked out. “We`re looking at a more stylized action film, like `The Bourne` series.
