Natural Star Nani is a huge admirer of legendary director and filmmaker Mani Ratnam. The actor has been approached to play the lead role in Mani Ratnam’s earlier but Nani could not allot his dates. However the actor lent his voice for OK Bangaram and now for the second time, Nani has been asked to play one among the lead roles in Mani Ratnam’s next film which will start soon.
Nani who has been occupied with back to back films walked out of the project to avoid the clash of his dates with his other films. Mani Ratnam replaced Nani and announced the lead star cast. Vijay Sethupathi, Jyothika, Fahad Fassil and Simbu will play the lead roles in this untitled film which will start rolling early next year. Madras Talkies will produce the movie.
