Mani Ratnam is currently busy shooting for the romantic flick Kaatru Veliyidai. The film stars Karthi and Aditi Rao Hydari in the lead. The team recently completed a schedule in Ooty and reports suggest they will shortly leave for Ladakh to shoot some key scenes and some action sequences. The action sequences are choreographed by Shaam Kaushal who earlier worked with Mani Ratnam in Raavan. Apparently the action sequences will be shot in a more realistic way, quite different from the usual blast and punch kind. This is expected from the ace director who previously captured the arid beauty of Ladakh in Dil se, another intense love story.

The team is expected to reach Kashmir for their next schedule in October. RJ Balaji, Shraddha Srinath and Delhi Ganesh play key roles in the movie. The music will be composed by A R Rahman, no surprise there. Cinematography is handled by Ravi Varman.
