The Oscar hero AR Rahman debuted in a Mani Ratnam film (‘Roja’) and ever since, the two have always worked hand in hand. Recently, director Balki, Mani Ratnam and Isaignani Ilayaraja had a brief yet happy reunion in Mumbai, and the grapevine was abuzz that Mani Ratnam may do a project with Ilayaraja. However, the director’s wife, actress Suhasini has denied this.
She says that Mani will be continuing his ARR rapport. The ace director who is currently maintaining a low profile after the ‘Kadal’ debacle, is said to be dusting out his old project and let it roll, as his next. The film titled ‘Lajjo’ will be based on the India-Pakistan partition and the associated problems. According to Suhasini, ‘Lajjo’ album will also be an ARR musical.
