Mani Ratnam's next movie Pookadai just got bigger with the
inclusion of Arvind Swamy to its cast. Well, the ace director has
reportedly signed the actor, who worked with him in superhit movies
like Roja and Bombay.
If reports are to be believed, Arvind Swamy, who refused
Vishal's offer to play the role of a baddie in Samaran,
has given the nod to play a key character in Pookadai. It
is said that when Mani Ratnam offered him the film, he just cannot
say no, as the filmmaker is his mentor.
Arvind Swamy is reportedly playing the role of a father to
either Samantha or Karthik in Pookadai. The other actors
in the cast are Arjun Sarja and Lakshmi Manchu. In the technical
front, Mani Ratnam's trusted men AR Rahman and Ravi K Chandran are
handing the music and cinematography department.
