Mallika Sherawat with Mani Ratnam - now doesn't that comes in as an unusual combination? But when Sherawat can be a part of Ram Gopal Varma and Subhash Ghai productions then this shouldn't be as surprising. Mallika has signed Mani Ratnam's next venture called Guru which also stars Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai. It is believed that she has been signed for an important role. The actress plays a crucial cameo which plays a significant part in the narrative of the film.
Another interesting member of the cast in the film is Mithun Chakraborthy. Mithun was to work with Ratnam years back on a Tamil film called Anandam. However but it didn't work out because Mani wanted Mithun to chop off his hair. Another reason was that Mithun was committed to work with other directors at that time. Also, it was reported that actor Vivek Oberoi has opted out of this film. The final casting is yet to be announced.
