Great director Mani Ratnam is not doing films of his standard in recent times. His films are far away from the taste of audience. Mani, who tested the patience of audience with Raavan and Kadal is now gearing up to do a mega budget film in Hindi.
The story is on the back drop of India-Pak separation time. Yes, it’s a periodic stuff. He is planning for a love story in his style. Since the story has got national appeal, he decided to make in Hindi. The estimated budget of the film is approximately Rs 100 Cr.
The casting is not yet finalized for the film. Mani who failed to impress Northern audience with Guru and Dil Se should prove himself by impressing both North and South Indian audience with this film.
Well Bollywood is not new to this period backdrop. 1942 Love Story that proved a musical hit is a commercial failure.
