Fahadh Faasil, Jyothika and Vijay Sethupathi in Mani Ratnam’s next
There have been a wide range of speculations regarding the lead actors in director Mani Ratnam’s next. Names like Ram Charan, Dulquer Salmaan, Madhavan, Fahadh Faasil, Vijay Sethupathi, Aditi Rao Hydari and Sarah Ali Khan have been doing the rounds. Finally, it seems like the director has zeroed in on the actors for his upcoming multistarrer.
Fahadh Faasil, Vijay Sethupathi, Jyothika, Nani and Aishwarya Rajesh have reportedly been roped in for this upcoming movie. Jyothika and Aishwarya Rajesh have already confirmed about signing for the movie while an official word regarding the casting of other actors is still awaited.
This yet-to-be-titled movie is being planned as a bilingual in Tamil and Telugu languages. Jyothika, in a recent interview revealed that the movie will be going on floors in January next year.
Mani Ratnam’s last release was Kaatru Veliyidai, a love story starring Karthi and Aditi Rao Hydari in the lead roles. The movie came in with high expectations but ended up as a disappointing affair at the box office. So the director will be itching to get back to some much needed success.
It was already confirmed that Santhosh Sivan will be cranking the camera and AR Rahman will be scoring the music for the director’s next. An official announcement of the project is expected to be made very soon.
