Mani Ratnam has remained silent for more than a year after his colossal failures Raavanan and Raavan. After this silence, his loyal fans have started wondering what he is up to. Whether or not he is making a film has been the biggest question asked by his fans.
Mani Ratnam keeps everything under cover till the last minute when he knows that the time is ripe to stir the expectations. He is the best in the way he markets movies. Nobody else does as better as him. Mani Ratnam was on a hiatus to make people forget the failure of Raavanan, say sources.
Now, he is back with his tentatively titled Pookkadai for which he is stationed in and around Kanyakumari and Kerala. He has been on the lookout for locations for his next film in which he will cast Karthik’s son. Looks like Mani is back to his sensible native roots with a love story. A.R Rahman will come out with his scintillating best and the film may be well received by the audience, say sources.
