After the stupendous success of Endhiran, Rajinikanth gears up for his next film Rana with Deepika Padukone, but the man was also interested in roping in Madhuri Dixit for the film.

Par yeh ho na saka! Mad over Madhuri, Rajinikanth faced disappointment after the actress politely declined the offer because soon she has to leave for the US to join her kids and family. No wonder everyone continues to be in the awe of this wonderful, effervescent actress.

As a source tells a daily, “Besides casting Deepika Padukone and Sonu Sood from Mumbai, Rajni Sir was also keen to have Madhuri Dixit in Rana. However she turned down the offer… saying that she was missing her sons Arin and Raayan.”

Madhuri came to India primarily to shoot for Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 4 where she is a judge along with the sexy Malaika Arora and choreographer Remo. It was reported that during her trip she will listen to some scripts but it seems she will keep her fans waiting.

Family still takes precedence over films for Madhuri.
