"It is Sonakshi’s debut in the south and we all are quite fascinated, including Rajinikanth sir, with how she has adapted to the southern movie so quickly," said a source close to the production team.
"Even though it is a completely foreign language for Sonakshi, she has been pretty quick with the shooting and all the scenes are coming out perfect in the first shot itself," the source added.
The film is directed by KS Ravikumar.
Sonakshi and Anushka Shetty will be playing the female leads in the film, for which double Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman will compose the tunes.
