Here is one of the awesome buzz that has set everyone abuzz in the Tamil cinema industry. Director Mani Ratnam, Tamil cinema’s most critically acclaimed director and who has his own fan base for his directorial might all set to direct the Superstar of the South cinema, Rajnikanth in his next project. It was almost two decades back that Mani Ratnam and Rajnikanth joined hands for the first and only time so far to come up with the iconic movie, Thalapathi, which also starred actors Mammooty and Aravind Samy in the lead roles along with superstar.
A well informed source close to the Superstar tells the media that Thalaivar has begun talks with the ace director Mani Ratnam for a new project together. The source adds that Mani Ratnam is also very willing to join the conversation with Rajnikanth for the talk about a new project. The source however says that no particular storyline has been featuring in the talks between the two. It seems Rajnikanth is interested in doing some Mani Ratnam styled contemporary flicks, which he has not done much in his career full of social, commercial and family entertainers. The source also reveals that if all goes well between the two icons of the Tamil cinema, then they would end up starting a project soon next year.
Almost two decades back Mani Ratnam – Rajnikanth’s Thalapathi garnered many accolades from the critics and the movie was also declared as a box office hit. However, after Thalapathi each, Rajnikanth and Mani Ratnam, grew in their own ways in Tamil cinema industry without crossing together again for a long time. Mani Ratnam got pan India acclaim after coming up with spectacular films in Hindi industry as well. Right now Mani is busy with the post production work of his Kadal and Rajnikanth is experimenting with 3D in Kochadaiyaan!
