Maniratnam has now started working on his upcoming film ‘Kaatru Veliyidai’ starring Karthi and Aditi Rao Hydari, which is being shot in the backdrops of Ooty. The first leg would be filmed here following which some sequences are planned to be shot there in Kashmir. The film’s first look poster gave a clear impression that it’s a love story interwoven between love and war. Kannada actress Shraddha Srinath was recently signed up for an important role and RJ Balaji too has been roped in. Moreover, Parthiepan’s daughter Keerthana who had played a lead role in his magnum opus ‘Kannathil Muthamittal’ has been given an important role to perform. With the shoot happening at full swing, we get to hear from the close sources that Maniratnam has offered veteran actor Delhi Ganesh to performan important role. It is worth mentioning that Delhi Ganesh was seen in Maniratnam’s fillm almost before 20 years in Kamal Haasan’s Nayagan.
