Mani Ratnam is nearly ready with Kadal
Filmmaker Mani Ratnam has almost wrapped up his dream project Kadal with only few days of shooting left now.
Apparently yesteryear actor Karthik’s son — Gautham Karthik and Radha’s daughter — Thulasi are playing the lead roles in the movie. Though everything about Mani’s films are being done in a hush-hush manner, a close unit hand lets the cat out of the bag about the character Thulasi essays.
According to the source, Thulasi plays a challenging role of a mentally deranged girl similar to what Sri Devi did in Moondram Pirai. It is learnt Mani was awestruck with the way Gautham was performing on the sets.
The movie has a backdrop of Rameswaram fishermen and Gautham portrays the son of a fisherman.
The film which has Rajiv Menon behind the camera has already been bought for Rs 25 crores by Gemini Films. Apparently, the combo of Mani and music director A.R. Rahman has already created huge musical expectations.
