Last year, the much-loved Aditi Rao Hydari made an emphatic comeback to Tamil cinema with Kaatru Veliyidai and gave her fans a reason to rejoice. In the Mani Ratnam directorial she delivered a strong performance and impressed movie buffs courtesy her chemistry with Karthi. Even though Kaatru Veliyidai underperformed at the box office, it received acclaim for its mature performances. With 2017 in the rearview, Aditi is working with Mani Ratnam again in his eagerly-awaited multi-starrer Chekka Chivantha Vaanam. And, as expected, she is quite happy about it. Now, there is some good news for her fans.
As it so happens, a photo from the sets of the film is creating a buzz amongst movie buffs. In it, Aditi can be seen alongside Mani Ratnam. And, she seems to be in the midst of an intense conversation with the ace filmmaker. We wonder what they are discussing here.
Interestingly, while confirming her involvement in the film, she had said that working with the Iruvar director again was a blessing for her.
“Another film with Mani sir is a blessing. While shooting for Kaatru Veliyidai, I was living my childhood dream of working with my favourite director. It was surreal and thrilling at the same time. It had been such an enriching experience that I got hooked to his style and discipline of filmmaking. I just can’t wait for the schedule of the film to kick off,” she had added.
In case you did not know, Chekka Chivantha Vaanam also features Arvind Swami-STR in the lead and is one of the most talked about Kollywood films in recent times. It also has Aishwarya Rajesh and Arun Vijay in key roles.
On a related note, this is a busy time for Aditi. Besides Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, she also has Sammohan in her kitty.
