Wow! Mani Ratnam pulls off a casting coup for his next?
Ever since Kaatru Veliyidai released, there have been a whole lot of speculations about the lead cast in Mani Ratnam’s next film. Ram Charan, Abishek Bachchan, Naani, Fahad Fassil, Madhavan and more recently Vijay Sethupathy were some of the names that were doing the rounds in connection with his upcoming movie.
Now, reports are doing the rounds that Mani Ratnam’s next will be a big budget multistarrer. Talks are abuzz that the director is trying to rope in Dulquer Salmaan, Fahadh Faasil, Arvind Swamy and Vijay Sethupathy for his next movie. That’s indeed a star studded line up.
Recently, Vijay Sethupathy had met Mani Ratnam at his office to discuss about this project. The director was also present for the press meet function of Dulquer’s Solo. So there are reports that they are taking this ambitious project forward.
It must be noted that among this big line up, only Fahadh Faasil and Vijay Sethupathy have not previously worked with Mani Ratnam. Interestingly enough, both these incredible actors are also part of National Award winner Thiagaraja Kuamararaja’s upcoming movie titled as Aneethi Kathaigal.
All the four actors have a good market in the South especially Dulquer and Vijay Sethupathy. If Mani Ratnam manages to get all four of them on board, it will be nothing short of a dream come true moment. The legendary filmmaker’s last release Kaatru Veliyidai, a highly anticipated love story starring Karthi and Aditi Rao Hydari, was 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.
