After 14-long-years, veterans PC Sreeram and Mani Ratnam have come forward to join their forces and work together for Mani’s upcoming film. “Last day of shoot for Shamitabh tonight, will be starting Mani film from October 6. I am walking the path with the force which guides me.” PC Sreeram wrote on his Twitter page.
The movie will have Dulquer Salman, son of Mammootty, and Nithya Menen in the lead roles. The film’s principal shooting will begin from Monday, October 6. Maverick Mani has etched a tight script this time and locked it. He’s now pinning high hopes on the film and hoping to make a grand comeback after disasters like Kadali, Raavan. Salman isn’t newcomer. He made his Kollywood debut with Vaayai Moodi Pesavum. Nithya is bundle of nerves as she is joining the Mani’s cast.
Ram Charan was the initial choice for the role but Charan gently turned down the offer stating that the script is not apt for him. However, Charan maintained that he’d be keen to act in Mani Ratnam’s film a day. Given that Nitya is a known face, Mani is planning to release the film in Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam.
