Much has been written and talked about what Mani Ratnam will do post Raavan. Now we’ve got the lowdown. Indeed Mani-Sir has signed Viveik Oberoi but this film will only be written and produced by him and directed by his erstwhile assistant Shiv Kumar. And the said film is not titled Azaan as reported by the media; it will be called Pakhi.
Also, Mani-Sir will start his next directorial film at the end of this year and it will indeed star heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor. This will be the first time they will work together. And this will be first time that Jr Kapoor is doing a period film. Yes, it’s a period film and it will also have a new female star.
PS: Contrary to media reports, we’re told that Karan Johar is writing his next directorial venture and it will star Shah Rukh Khan and Ranbir Kapoor in lead roles.
