There are rumors swirling around that Mani Ratnam is going to have the gorgeous Rani Mukherjee in his next film. And, opposite her will be the south Indian superstar Rajnikant.
Though by no means confirmed, there is a lot of talk in Mani Ratnam’s camp that she will be in his next movie. Kamal Hassan will be producing the film and he, Mani Ratnam and Rajnikant met to discuss working together. Hassan has denied it but insiders say the project is a go and will soon go to the floor. A R Rahman is set to do the score for the film.
Rani’s name is being discussed according to a source close to Ratnam’s camp is because not only did she and Rantman have a good working relationship on their first film Yuva, it is also because Rajnikath wants her in the film. He has long desired to do a film with her, in fact she was even the star that director Shankar wanted for the smash hit Sivaji-The Boss but sadly she did not have the available dates.
This of course is all unconfirmed by the notoriously ‘keep our casts under raps until release of the film’ Ratnam but it is known that Rajniknat will be in the film. Watch this space for confirmation or denial of this possibly exciting casting news!
