Mani Ratnam after completing the forest schedule for his bi-lingual Ravan in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu, is now shooting in Ooty.
The day one of the shoot in Tamilnadu at Ooty had to be cancelled as local cab operators and FEFSI (Film Employees Federation of South India) got into a dispute over who has the right to operate taxi service to the location.
Finally after a day's shoot was cancelled, the shooting was resumed the next day. The entire crew of Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai, Vikram, Pritviraj and others took part in the shoot.
The Ooty schedule will be over by Christmas, and then Mani and his unit will be moving over to Hogenakkal, for more forest cover locations.
As per sources close to the unit Mani, the fast worker has completed nearly 35 percent of the bilingual, which by any standards is amazing.
