Director Mani Ratnam’s next movie has now received its official title. It was heard that his forthcoming offering was named Pookadai. But things went for a flip when an assistant director Satish claimed that he already had the name booked with the Producer’s council. When Mani came to know about it he denied all association with Pookadai saying that he had nothing to do with the title.
Now the director has announced that his next flick will be called Kadal(Sea in English). As it was reported, the movie is themed around the fishermen in the coasts of Tamil Nadu suffering at the hands of the Sri Lankan Army. The movie has Karthik’s son Gautham making his debut alongside the beautiful Samantha Ruth Prabhu. As part of the ensemble cast Mani has chosen his favorite Arvind Swamy, Action King Arjun to play a negative role, Thambi Ramaiah as comedian and Telugu actress Lakshmi Manchu to play a key role in Kadal. The film also has Mani’s Bombay cinematographer Rajiv Menon behind the lens, Vairamuthu penning the lyrics and Isai Puyal Ar Rahman doing the musical honors. Rahman has already recorded one of the songs for the movie, a beautiful melody number that received high praises from lyricist Vairamuthu.
