Mumbai, Feb 23: Bollywood diva Madhuri Dixit today said she rejected the offer to star in a Tamil film along with Southern superstar Rajnikant because it was not the "right role" for her.
The 'dhak dhak' actress was offered a role in Rajnikant's upcoming film 'Rana'.
"Would have loved to do a film with Rajnikanth but the role was that of his sister...need to wait for the right role," Madhuri said on micro-blogging site Twitter.
'Rana', a Tamil historical action film directed by K S Ravikumar stars Rajinikant, Deepika Padukone, and Sonu Sood in lead roles. The film will be jointly produced by Ocher Picture Productions and Eros International.
Madhuri has worked with the 61-year-old veteran in 'Uttar Dakshin' in 1987.
With filming to start in April this year, the movie is expected to be simultaneously made in Hindi and dubbed in Telugu, all three of which are slated for release in 2012.
Madhuri is currently judging a television dance reality show 'Jhalak Dikhlaa Ja'. PTI
