Dr. Kamala Selvaraj (In Pic: extreme right), the ‘miracle’ doctor, renowned obstetrician and gynecologist is making a full-length, no-holds barred biopic on her father the legendary Gemini Ganesan titled Kaadhal Mannan.

The film will have a tag line — ‘The King of Romance’. The film will be about the life and times of Kollywood’s greatest romantist, the Gary Cooper of his times. It is going to be a “kiss and tell” story which will span nearly five decades of his career, as the eternal lover boy of the industry.

The film will be directed by documentary filmmaker Venkatraman and will include clippings from all his landmark films like- Missiamma, Kalyana Parisu, Paava Manippu, Punnagai etc.

Says Dr. Kamala Selvaraj: “My father’s life is an open book, and he never tried to keep anything a secret. Appa was a very natural actor and touched a chord with the audiences. Even today people have great respect and love for me because I ‘am Gemini Ganesan’s daughter.”

Kaadhal Mannan is going to be a memorable collector’s item, and will have a theatrical release in July, along with its DVD release for the international audiences.
