Chennai: Murali Manohar, co-producer of Tamil superstar Rajinikanth starrer ‘Rana’, has denied reports that the film has been shelved, saying shooting has only been temporarily suspended.
Rajinikanth fell ill during the first day`s shooting of ‘Rana’ in April end and has not been keeping well since. Currently the 60-year-old is in Singapore for treatment.
Reports in some sections of the media claimed that the film might be postponed by a year in order to give Rajini ample time to recover fully from the illnesses.
"It is a baseless rumour that `Rana` would be abandoned. This is Rajini sir`s dream film and it will be be made at any cost. The shooting involving Rajini is likely to commence from September," said Manohar.
"The film`s shooting has only been temporarily suspended due to Rajini`s ill health. Now that he is recovering fast, the shooting is likely to commence soon," he clarified.
