Mani Ratnam Karthis Kaatru Veliyidai first look poster released
The first look of Mani Ratnam’s next film Kaatru Veliyidai is out. The film will star Karthi and Aditi Rao Hydari in lead roles.
The first look gives an impression of it being a romantic flick, the genre which is considered to be Mani Ratnam’s forte. The title is reportedly inspired by a phrase from a Maha Kavi Bharathi’s poetry.
Aditi Rao Hydari of Bollywood movie “Wazir” fame plays the female lead in the movie. The film has AR Rahman’s music, Ravi Varman’s cinematography and Sreekar Prasad’s editing. Sharmishta Roy is the art director of the film and Vairamuthu will pen lyrics for the flick, which has RJ Balaji in an important role.
The film’s poster indicates it’s a romance drama, a genre that is a strong suit of the director.
The film’s music is being scored by AR Rahman with lyrics by Vairamuthu. The cinematography is by Ravi Varman and art direction by Sharmishta Roy.
Aditi made her debut in Tamil with the film Srirangam. The actress had previously tweeted about working on her Tamil for Kaatru Veliyidai. Sai Pallavi had been roped in for this earlier before being replaced by Aditi.
The film will begin shoot on July 8 and will be shot in Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam simultaneously. The film is being produced by Ratnam under his banner Madras Talkies.
