It’s well known that ace director Mani Ratnam is in plans of directing a film based on pure love which is set against the backdrop of a fishing village in southern Tamil Nadu.
Now we hear that Mani has roped in veteran actor Karthik’s son Gautham and Tulasi daughter of actress Radha and sister of KO heroine Karthika. The director has been to Mumbai last week and has visited Radha’s house to meet her daughter Thulasi, who is studying in the 9th standard. But Radha is in a dilemma whether to launch her daughter or not as she feels that Thulasi is too young to debut in films. However Radha is yet to take a call on this regard.
This will be a casting coup of sorts if Tulasi and Gautham come together. If we move into the flashback of 30 years, Tulasi’s mom Radha made her screen debut opposite Karthik, Gautham’s dad in Bharathiraja classic Alaigal Oyivathillai?
Undoubtedly this is for the first time a noted hero’s son will be debuting opposite the daughter of the heroine of his first film!
