After a lot of confusion on casting, looks like the Kadal director is ready to roll with his next venture
Things haven't been great for Mani Ratnam since the last few years. While his 2013 magnum opus Kadal bombed at the box office, the director has faced roadblocks time and again as he started gathering cast for his comeback flick to Tollywood. Now we hear that the Roja director has finally found his lead pair for a romantic bilingual in Tamil and Malayalam.
A little birdie informs us that Mani Ratnam has signed two budding actors, Dulquer Salman and Nithya Menon, as the leads. While there was rumour that Nivin Pauly may be playing a prominent role in the film, the Neram actor refuted the rumours as he revealed he was never approached by Raavan director. If sources are to be believed, it seems like the ace director was impressed by Dulquer and Nithya's performance in Malayalam blockbuster Bangalore Days and decided to rope them in his next flick.
It seems like Mani might have to wait for a few more years for his comeback to Telugu film industry. But with a young and refreshing star cast in his basket, we expect the auteur to create something truly magical!
