The news has arrived and it’s sizzling red hot. Mani Ratnam’s next big-flick will be titled Pookkadai(flower shop) with Karthik’s son Gautham and Radha’s second daughter Tulasi playing the lead pair. Even though it was known that Gautham would be playing male lead, there has been a lot of speculation regarding who would be playing the female lead in the movie.Recently there was also news that QT-pie Samantha was rejected in the screen test conducted by Mani.
Pookadai , happens to be an exclusive Tamil release (unlike Dhanush’s bilingual…LOL regular Kollytalkers would get what we meant…so try to be a regular if you din’t the joke).It would be another blissful romantic offering said to be on the lines of Mani’s hit 2002 Eelam Tamil themed ‘Kannathil Muthamittal’.Since then Mani and his right hand man Isai Puyal AR Rahman have been delivering bilinguals and trilingual to satisfy the growing fan base.With Rahman looking forward to this one, Cinematographer Rajiv Menon is cleaning up his crystal lenses to capture some love-ly locations.
Well the title does take us back to Mani n Rahman’s Iruvar days …so until further updates join us as we sing….
