Mani Ratnam’s production house Madras Talkies is back into production and the proejct is titled Vaanam Kottatum. It stars Vikram Prabhu and Aishwarya Rajesh in lead roles.
The maverick filmmaker’s erstwhile associate Dhanasekharan will be directing the film which is being tipped as a romantic entertainer.
Vaanam Kotatum also has Radhika and Sarathkumar in pivotal characters. Sources say that the film will be predominantly shot in Chennai, Madurai and surrounding locales.
The film has music by 96 fame Govind Vasantha, and he had recently expressed a lot of excitement in signing this film under Mani Ratnam’s production. He had shared the news on his Instagram page last November.
“With the man who brought Velunayakan and Anandan to life in front of us. Honoured to have signed up for a movie to be produced and co-written by The Mani Ratnam. Directed by Dhana Sekaran,” he said in his post.
Looks like Aishwarya Rajesh’s stars are working in her favour not only in Tamil but also in Tollywood. It was recently said she would be romancing Sivakarthikeyan in his upcoming flick with Pandiraj to be produced by Sun Pictures. Now she is also paired opposite Vikram Prabhu in the film produced by Mani Ratnam.
She wrapped up 2018 with her power packed performance in the emotional sports drama Kanaa and now even as her debut Telugu movie with Vijay Devarakonda is yet to release, the dusky actress has been roped in for the T’town remake of Kanaa.
