Mani Ratnam strays away from the usual

A Mani Ratnam production is always known to have a default bevy of artists working on it. Surprisingly, the man behind some of kollywood’s best movies has decided to take a detour in terms of selection this time and has decided to rope in Ravi Varman, the acclaimed cameraman of films like ‘Vettaiyadu Vilayadu’, ‘Anniyan’ and ‘Barfi’ to name a few. The director’s regular cameraman and close friend PC Sreeram might not be on board this time. The film will feature Karthi in the lead role while Dulquer Salman and Keerthi Suresh will be seen as the other lead actors. And, if there’s one thing that remains consistent in every Mani Ratnam film, it’s AR Rahman’s soulful music, as so will it be this time too.
