Tug of warAtul Agnihotri, who is planning a biopic on Rajinikanth, is facing opposition from the south superstarís family
Atul Agnihotri has been revelling in the box-office success of Bodyguard. The filmmaker has already chalked out plans for his next project - a biopic on superstar Rajinikanth (Mumbai Mirror, May 4, 2011). However, it seems that the project has already hit a roadblock. Reportedly, Rajini's family does not share Agnihotri's excitement about the film.
When contacted, Rajinikanth's younger daughter Soundarya told Mumbai Mirror, "We are not aware of this project and don't approve of it without proper talks. Please convey our disapproval to the producer Atul Agnihotri and director Lloyd Baptista. We'd be happy to talk to Mr Atul."
However, director Baptista seemed to be on a different page. "Rajinikanthji is going through the final draft. That's what his manager told me. In terms of casting, we are considering a foreign actor, who happens to be an Oscar nominee."
A source informed us that Rajini's family already has plans of making a film on the star's life.
