Radhika Apte:

The talented actress, who is known for her acclaimed performances in Parched, Badlapur, Hunterr and the short film Ahalya, played Rajini’s wife in his last outing, the 2016 film, Kabali. Unlike many of his other films, Kabali saw Radhika play a prominent role as Rajini’s fiery wife, with a strong presence of her own. While the film received mixed reviews from critics, Radhika’s performance in it was lauded.

Rajinikanth’s leading ladies from Bollywood

According to reports that have been doing the rounds, Vidya Balan has been roped in to act in Rajinikanth’s next movie. While the actress has neither confirmed nor denied the reports, the film is tipped to be a gangster movie directed by Tamil director Pa Ranjith, and produced by Rajini’s son-in-law, Dhanush.

Over the more than four decades that Rajinikanth has been in the film industry, he has acted with and romanced numerous heroines across laguages.
