It was earlier reported that ace filmmaker Mani Ratnam will collaborate for a film with Jyothika for the first time. The film, which is yet to be titled, will also feature Simbhu, Fahadh Faasil, Vijay Sethupathi, Aishwarya Rajesh and Arvind Swami. This multi starrer movie is likely to start rolling in January 2018.
Earlier today, it was announced on social media that Simbu will start his Hollywood directorial debut in October and will wrap it before the year ends to start working with the legendary film maker Mani Ratnam. Simbu has been roped in after Nani had rejected this owing to the two Telugu movies that he has earlier signed up. Post Kaatru Veliyidai, Mani Ratnam has been working on this script and has announced it last month. Mani Ratnam is yet again going to collaborate with the Oscar and Academy winning Music Composer A.R. Rahman.
This movie is going to be bankrolled by Madras Talkies and has audience pinning high expectations on this. Mani Ratnam’s team is always a set of technicians who have been close to him over years. For this movie as well, Cinematographer Santosh Sivan has been approached to cast his spell behind the lens and thus making it his sixth time with Mani Ratnam. This untitled project is said to be an action thriller in contrary to Mr Ratnam’s genre of movies and is going to set a different path in his style.
It is definitely going to be a treat for all Mani Ratnam’s fans to watch the fantastic cast and crew work together. Hope this movie will create another blockbuster and will live upto the high expectations of the audience.
