In 2015, Mani Ratnam approached both Dulquer and Nani for a Tamil-Telugu bilingual. Later the project was dropped and now, the director is penning a new script which will have actor Karthi and Premam fame Sai Pallavi in the lead.
In a recent interview, Nani has revealed that Mani Ratnam shelved the film because the storyline was similar to another Hindi flick. Now, sources have revealed that the script was similar to Badlapur, a critically acclaimed revenge saga in Hindi.
The new film of Mani Ratnam will go on floors in June and Rahman will be the music composer.
