Leading ladies’ canned debuts in K-town

Some people get the right script the first time but for some, things just don’t fall into place. We’re referring to the debut of some leading ladies, who are eager to kickstart their filmi career in Tamil cinema with much fanfare.
However, due to various reasons, their debut films seem to be stalled. Here’s a look at some of them:

Zarine Khan and Karikalan
This actress is currently working on Vikram’s flick Karikalan which seems to be in a spot of bother, considering the actor’s busy schedule. While the Veer actress is kicked about the Tamil period film and her role in it, the film – despite being announced almost a year ago – is not even half complete, due to issues like the strike in Kollywood, a controversy over who actually wrote the script of the film and Vikram’s other film commitments.

Varalaxmi and Podaa Podi
Sarath Kumar’s daughter Varalaxmi must have come to the Tamil film industry with a lot of dreams but her debut vehicle Podaa Podi seems to have been pushed a tad too much. The Simbu-Varu romantic entertainer has been delayed for nearly two years now. Finally, it seems to be seeing the light of day with the team currently shooting the final portions in Hong Kong.

Deepika Padukone and Rana
After successful outings in Bollywood, this beauty was supposed to kickstart her Kollywood innings with a biggie, the Rajinikanth-starrer Rana. Deepika came down to Chennai to attend the puja, the day when the Superstar was taken ill, and even shot a grand song sequence for the film. Unfortunately, due to Rajini’s ill-health, the film had to be postponed and is currently on hold. However, all is not lost for the actress as the Superstar’s upcoming flick Kochadaiyaan will feature her as the leading lady and her dream of “working with Rajini sir” will indeed come true. What’s more, Deepika actually pipped Katrina Kaif (who was approached by the makers of Kochadaiyaan initially) to bag this role!

Sonakshi Sinha and Viswaroopam
The Dabangg girl had signed Viswaroopam and was looking forward to debuting in Tamil with this big-budget Kamal Haasan film, but things took a U-turn when the film’s schedules went awry. The actress couldn’t adjust her dates for the Tamil flick and so walked out of the project.
