Each day, sections of the press have been reporting some news or the other about ace director Mani Ratnam’s new film. Mani Ratnam’s latest film, O Kadhal Kanmani, released in April and turned out to be a hit film, giving the directed some reprieve after a series of failures during the past few years.
Talk has obviously veered down to what would be Mani’s next film. It was first said that Karthi and Dulquer Salmaan would be playing the two heroes in the film. Shruti Haasan would be the solo heroine, it was earlier said. Now, Nayantara has been ‘added to the cast’ by rumour-mongers who say that Nayan’s long-standing dream of starring in a Mani Ratnam film would be finally fulfilled with this film.
Critics feel that despite her status of a frontline heroine in Kollywood, Nayantars’s CV appears ‘incomplete’ without a Mani Ratnam film in it. If it really turns out that Karthi, Dulquer, Nayantara and Shruti would be part of the cast, viewers could then hope for an exciting and new set of on-screen pairing!
