Mani Ratnam's next movie has continued to make news even though the director is reluctant about speaking about it. Post Kadal, which was declared as a below-par movie of his esteemed career, the filmmaker is working on multiple scripts, but he has not finalised his next movie.
It was said that Mani Ratnam would be making a Bollywood movie titled Lajjo. The Hindi movie is based on the India-Pakistan partition. There were also buzz that he had not zeroed in on the project yet and a Tamil-bilingual movie was on the cards.
The bilingual movie reportedly features Malayalam actor Fahad Fazil in the lead role. However, sources close to the director had denied the news and has claimed now that Mani Ratnam has three scripts in his hands.
Mani Ratnam is working on all three scripts and it would take a month for him to finalise the script. It is only after that he would be finalising the cast and crew. It has to be noted that the director has not roped in any writer to work on his scripts this time. Sources add that the filmmaker is likely to take up a romantic project.
