It seems the saga of Sonakshi Sinha's proposed Tamil project, ‘Vishwaroopam’, with the mighty Kamal Haasan is far from over. Though the delay in the project has forced the actress out, the indefatigable maestro of makeovers has his heart and mind set on her.

Feelers after feelers are apparently being sent to Sonakshi and her father Shatrughan Sinha.

"Now that Kamal Haasan has taken over the direction of the project it is more imperative than ever that he get his first choice for the leading lady, and that's Sonakshi. The role was written with her in mind," said a source.

But despite the legendary actor's persistence, Sonakshi is unable to accommodate the project.

"Sonakshi has allotted her dates to Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Prabhu Deva for 'Rowdy Rathore'. This will go on through August. Then in September she does another schedule of Shrish Kunder's 'Joker'. 'Vishwaroopam' was supposed to start rolling in May-June. It's still not taken off. There is no way she can accommodate Kamalji," said a source close to Sonakshi.

Apparently Sonakshi, who became a rage after her debut in superhit movie ‘Dabangg’, has been wondering why her presence in the film is so important.

"It's a wonderful role and it suits Sonakshi. Kamal Haasan wants 'Vishwaroopam' to compete at the box office with Rajnikanth's 'Rana'," said the source.

In the two lavish projects set in two continents, the two Tamil superstars share screen space with the two Bollywood beauties Deepika Padukone and Sonakshi.

Interestingly both ‘Rana’ and ‘Vishwaroopam’ got delayed due to various reasons and are now expected to start and be completed at about the same time.
