Rana hasn't been cancelled

On May 1 I reported that Rana had started principle photography. Now it seems that, in the Indian press at least, stories about the film being cancelled due to lead actor Rajinikanth’s ill health are circulating. The below letter states two things - these being that the star is ill BUT all this means is that the film will be slightly delayed and not cancelled.

To whom so ever it may concern
Respected Sir / Madam,
We have been getting some disturbing feedback about the film Rana being cancelled. This, we would like to ascertain is a totally false newscast. It is natural for people to fall ill and as our leading star is now not so well, we feel unpleasant about these rumours confirming the film being dropped. Rana is Superstar Rajini Sir’s dream project and his brain child and hence he is very much keen on undertaking it and completing it successfully. His ill health might have caused a minor glitch initially in our shooting plans but Rajini sir is all positive about recovering and getting back into action. Moreover we have Deepika Padukone’s dates only from post July. Any and every news cast that you might have witnessed in any media confirming the project dropped is, we are sorry to state, completely false. The shoot is just postponed temporarily awaiting his complete and total recovery. Subsequently he is now on his way towards a speedy recovery and we shall be releasing Rana the following year (2012) as planned.

Thanks and Regards
K.S.Ravikumar
Director
