Sources close to STR confirms that the actor has signed on the dotted line, to play an important role in Mani Ratnam’s upcoming multi-starrer.
The news has come as a huge boost for STR fans, after the big blow they received with the box office failure of ‘Anabanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan’. They consider Mani Ratnam’s film as a huge opportunity for their matinee-idol to bounce back and get a new image.
Already, Jyothika and Aishwarya Rajesh have confirmed their presence in this untitled film. Buzz is that Arvind Swamy, Telugu actor Naani and Fahadh Faasil from Malayalam are on board while Vijay Sethupathi will be doing a special appearance.
An official announcement is awaited from Madras Talkies, regarding the cast and crew while speculations are rife that as the film is a bilingual and Naani will be reprising the same role that STR will be doing in Tamil. But nothing is confirmed yet.
AR Rahman will compose the music for the film and Santhosh Sivan will handle the cinematography department.
