As reported earlier, director Mani Ratnam's upcoming project will have Telugu superstars Maheshbabu and Nagarjuna playing the lead roles. Former Miss World is also expected to mark her reentry into films with this film.
Reliable sources state that this will be a Telugu film, which means this time we cannot expect a direct Tamil film from Mani. However owing to the fan following of the director, the film will be dubbed and released in Tamil like the Hindi film Guru that released in 2007. Also they say that the ace filmmaker is done with the pre production work and has decided to go on floors from June, in Hyderabad. It is also said that the film will be an out and out commercial flick on the lines of Agni Natchathiram.
Mani Ratnam's regular music ally, Isaipuyal A.R.Rahman will be the composer and cinematographer Ravi Varman will be working with Mani for the first time in this film.
