Apart from making exceptional films, Mani Ratnam holds a special courtesy for establishing his actors in a much different and unforeseen role. Well, the best example would be Madhavan"s role in Aayitha Ezhuthu and Kannathil Mutthamittal. The so-called 'Chocolate Boy" shed his good-looking image and spotted himself so powerfully as a ruffian and revolutionary writer in those flicks.
Abhishek Bachchan wasn"t any different, as Mani Ratnam transcended his actor's prowess with Yuva and Guru.
And now, it"s the turn of Vikram to strike gold, as Mani Ratnam has shot an exclusive trailer for his Raavan featuring Vikram alone. Sources believe that the complete teaser would precisely deliver a glimpse on his breathtaking performance. Also, a different teaser for the Hindi version featuring the actor will be aired simultaneously.
It"s noteworthy that Vikram plays 'Raavan' in the Tamil and 'Ram" in the Hindi version.
