Now we heard it through the grapevine that director Mani Ratnam is going to achieve the unimaginable. Buzz is that the veteran director is trying to make amends for the creative indifferences caused between Isaignani Ilayaraja and Isai Puyal AR Rahman and if things work out fans can expect a historical musical extravaganza.The movie is already boasting of some big names that include Vijay,Vikram,Vishal and lately it was Mahesh Babu who joined the team.The director surely is going to set new records if he gets both musical geniuses to board the same ship given the fact that Sun Pictures is funding in a mammoth 200 crore for this monumental offering based on Kalki’s novel Ponniyin Selvan.
It maybe recalled that Mani Ratnam earlier suggested Yuvan Shankar Raja’s name for a Bollywood flick which the composer has already started working on as he had confirmed the same. Now that surely signals more than enough.
Will history be rewritten with this magnum opus offering?
