It's not just the music maestro Ilayaraja's birthday today. Another film legend, ace filmmaker Mani Ratnam blows another candle today (June 2). Six time National Award winner, Mani, is currently working on 'Kadal' (Tamil).
Everything about 'Kadal' has been kept under the wraps, including the hero! Popular Tamil actor Karthik's son Gautham is being launched through this flick but the star kid's face is kept away from the media! Cast opposite him is Samantha. The film has music by AR Rahman, of course.
Earlier media was abuzz that the film has been titled 'Pookadai' however Mani squashed them as baseless rumors. Several scenes from the film have been shot in the coastal regions of TN and the next schedule is yet to kick start.
'Kadal' is eagerly awaited by Mani's fans as the film is an out and out romantic entertainer, and brings back the filmmaker to a south based project after quite sometime.
IndiaGlitz wishes Mani Ratnam a very happy birthday!
