Ranjith ropes in Attakathi Dinesh for his Rajini film

From the never- ending rounds of speculations surrounding the cast and crew of Rajinikanth’s next film with director Ranjith, comes this bit of confirmed news that Ranjith has roped in Attakathi Dinesh for a pivotal role in the film. We had earlier reported that Radhika Apte will be the female lead in the film.
Interestingly, this casting seems to be the continuation of a friendship forged during the days of Ranjith’s debut film, Attakathi, which had Dinesh in the lead. The duo had kept up with each other, and have been good friends since then.
A source close to the makers of the film has also confirmed this news, saying, “Dinesh will be a part of the film, but as of now, we haven’t officially signed the agreement.” Ranjith has apparently penned an interesting character for Dinesh — something of crucial importance to the film.
