After the flop of Kadal, Maniratnam took a long gap in his directorial venture and came back striking gold with O Kadhal Kanmani starring Dulquer Salman and Nithya Menen in lead roles. The film turned to be a decent hit in the box office and that has prompted Mani Ratnam to attempt with same kind of movies.
His upcoming film ‘Kaatru Veliyidai’ starring Karthi and Bollywood actress Aditi Rao Hydari in lead roles. The film also features Kannada actress Shraddha Srinath in an important character and RJ Balaji has joined the crew as well. Now the film’s shooting is happening on full swing and would be completed by end of this year.
At the same time, Maniratnam’s long time associate is remaking his ‘O Kadhal Kanmani’ as ‘OK Jaanu’ and this film will be hitting screens in 2017 April. It looks like Kaatru Veliyidai too is looking up for the same month of release. So it’s surely gonna be a double delight for Maniratnam and his fans too.
