Mani Ratnam is ready to wield the megaphone after a break. His yet-to-be-titled film will go on floors very soon, before which the ace director wants to record all the songs. “There will be six songs in total,” say circles close to him.
“Mani Ratnam, along with A.R Rahman and lyricist Vairamuthu, has already recorded a song. It is a soft romantic number which has melliflous music by the Oscar-Grammy winner and soothing lyrics from the Kaviperarsu,” they say further.
Ace actor Karthik‘s son Gautham is making his acting debut with this movie and a hunt is still on for the heroine. “A new face may be the leading lady of this film. Mani Ratnam is yet to take a final call on this,” the sources say.
To be produced on Mani Ratnam‘s Madras Talkies banner in association with a corporate house, the film, set in the backdrop of coastal regions of Tamil Nadu, has script by ace writer Jeyamohan. “Shooting will start soon,” conclude sources.
