Superstar Rajinikanth is all set to romance another Bollywood actress in his upcoming untitled movie. After romancing Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Deepika Padukone and Radhika Apte, Rajini will share screen next with Huma Qureshi.

It has been reported that the makers of Rajinikanth's next Tamil movie have roped in Huma as the female lead, and the actress too is very excited to work with the megastar.

"The makers were looking for someone with a strong screen presence as it's a performance-oriented role. Huma will play Rajinikanth's love interest. She is really excited. They start shooting in Mumbai from May 28 and Huma will start prep soon," Mumbai Mirror quoted a source as saying.

Rajini's last movie Kabali had featured Radhika, and the film had become a big hit. On the other side, Huma was last seen alongside Akshay Kumar in Jolly LLB 2, which also did well at the box office.

Meanwhile, Rajinikanth is in news for his possible entry into politics. The actor had recently hinted that he may join politics. However, this news was followed by strong criticism from Subramanian Swamy.

The latter had said that Rajini will fail in politics, and even claimed that the actor is a Marathi from Bengaluru and not Tamilian. He had also said that Rajinikanth has no ideology, and must stay away from politics.
