Simbu gets ready for his next with Mani Ratnam; Also starring Fahadh Faasil, Vijay Sethupathi and Arvind Swamy!
Ace filmmaker Mani Ratnam is gearing up to start shooting for his next film – a multi-starrer with several leading actors. The director has pulled off a casting coup by roping in Arvind Swamy, Vijay Sethupathi, Fahadh Faasil, Simbu, Jyothika and Aishwarya Rajesh for his next movie. Mani Ratnam’s Madras Talkies will be producing the movie, which is expected to go on floors by the end of January.
Recently, there were lot of talks about Simbu acting in the film. The actor has been served with a red card by the Tamil Nadu Film Producers Council (TFPC) based on the complaint filed by Michael Rayappan, the producer of his last film Anbanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan (AAA). There were even reports about TFPC members calling Mani Ratnam and asking him not to cast him. But it looks like the director is unfazed by all that and is moving forward with Simbu.
Last day, Simbu shared a photo of him with Mani Ratnam in his offical social media handle. He was attending an acting workshop with the legendary filmmaker for their upcoming movie. Simbu also seeked blessings from the director for his musical debut Sakka Podu Podu Raja which has Santhanam in the lead.
For his upcoming multi-starrer, Mani Ratnam has brought on board his regular set of technicians- composer AR Rahman, cinematographer Santhosh Sivan and editor Sreekar Prasad.
