But you might've not known that the film is an intense revenge drama that will showcase Karthi taking on Dulquer. It is said that the two might even exchange some vigorous blows in the movie.
The very story line of this upcoming movie of Mani Ratnam's might remind us of the 1988 classic Agni Natchathiram in which Prabhu was pitted against Karthik for most part of the film.
While Agni Natchathiram had Nirosha and Amala Akkineni, Keerthi Suresh of Idhu Enna Maayam fame has been roped into this Karthi-Dulquer starrer. News regarding the complete cast and crew is awaited.
Meanwhile, Mr Ratnam's previous movie O Kadhal Kanmani has been selected to be played at the Busan International Film Festival in South Korea.
The 10 day film festival which starts from the 1st of October is considered as one of the most significant film festivals in the whole of Asia.
Vijay Sethupathi's Orange Mittai too has been selected along with OK Kanmani and it is said that these two Tamil movies will be played under the section, 'A Window On Asian Cinema'.
Stay tuned for more updates regarding this exciting project.
