Talking about the film, it also stars Jyothika, Aditi Rao Hydari and Aishwarya Rajesh. The technical team of Chekka Chivantha Vaanam includes editor Sreekar Prasad and composer AR Rahman. The film will be dubbed and released in Telugu as Nawab and the music is given by AR Rahman. Well, Aditi Rao Hydari reuniting with filmmaker Mani Ratnam is one of the highlights of the film.
Confirming this development, Aditi said she couldn’t have hoped for a better start to 2018. “The positive reviews for Padmaavat were totally unexpected since I thought I didn’t have much to do. Now I am again doing a film with Mani Ratnam, just a year after Kaatru Veliyidai.”
Chekka Chivantha Vaanam is a crucial film for STR as 2017 didn’t end on a good note for the actor. His highly ambitious AAA bombed at the box office and failed to impress critics. Audiences have a lot of expectations from Chekka Chivantha Vaanam.
The release date of the film is yet to be announced!
