Earlier this week, Deepika Padukone flew to Chennai to shoot a romantic song with Rajinikanth. The number, an ultra-romantic love duet, was choreographed by Saroj Khan. And we hear Ms Khan, known to make screen-couples sizzle on screen with their chemistry, had planned some scorching-hot moves between the two.
But God proposes, Rajinikanth disposes.
It took Deepika's intervention to convince the mega-star to cuddle and get lovey dovey for the song. Says a source from the Kochadaiyyan team, "Rajini Sir wanted the romantic movements and gestures to be watered down. But Deepika insisted on letting them be. She in fact made sure Rajini Sir was comfortable."
When quizzed about the romantic song the Kochadaiyyan, producer Dr. Murli Manohar said, "It's a brilliant romantic song. A duet with classical undertones. It's not a classical dance number, as wrongly reported in the media. A. R. Rahman has outdone himself in the song. It's an extremely romantic song with classical elements woven into it. But it isn't a classical dance number."
