Genius Mani Ratnam’s Kaatru Veliyidai just released and has received mixed response from different sections. Kamal Haasan was last seen in Thoongaa Vanam in a dynamic character and film had a great response. Super Star Rajinikanth latest release Kabali was an average flick with producers claiming it to be it while distributors have a different story to it. Common thing amongst all the three bigwigs is that they haven’t had a blockbuster film in the last few years. And the buzz is that these three gentlemen are coming together. And no, it is not for a film!!
Veteran filmmaker Bharathiraja is starting off a film institute and has named it BRIIC (Bharathiraja International Institute of cinema). And for this, Kamal Haasan, Rajinikanth and Mani Ratnam will come together to inaugurate. The premises of the institute will be inaugurated by Super Star Rajinikanth while Kamal Haasan will unveil the preview theatre in the facility. Mani Ratnam will give out the first application for the institute to the students. The event will also see big names in attendance like Rekha, Radha, Radhikaa Sarathkumar, Suhasini Mani Ratnam and Vairamuthu.
The institute will offer courses in direction, acting, cinematography, editing & compositing, editing & VFX, sound design, production design/art direction & set designing. Speaking to a leading daily about it Bharathiraja said,” These are the training which will be given to students of BRIIC. All students will be trained by the pioneer and masters in cine industry who has years and years of experience. Combining experience with the latest technology, the course will be an eye opener for the students.”
