How much ever Mani Ratnam remains tight-lipped and safely guards his forthcoming biggie, 'Kadal', every tidbit about the film is making headlines. Now, the latest is that the ace director has roped in Malayalam comedian Baiju (also called Byju) but not for comic relief! The actor might be seen as a character artist in the film.
Remember Mani Ratnam's Alaipayuthey featured Vivek in quite a serious role compared to the comedian's other films.

Arjun, Arvind Samy, Lakshmi Manchu are said to be seen in pivotal roles and the film is set on the lives of fishermen. With music by AR Rahman, the film has Mani helming a romantic entertainer after quite sometime...
