Post Kaatru Veliyidai, Mani Ratnam has been working on this script and has announced it recently. 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.
