Though Mani started his career through a Kannada movie (Pallavi Anupallavi), he concentrated fully in Tamil Cinema and till now trying to give more experimental films. In fact, Mani Rathnam did not work under any film directors or technicians and straight away he made his entry after completing his MBA in Kolkata.
No need to say that films like Mouna Raagam, Nayagan, Thalapathy, Roja and Bombay are Mani's remarkable contributions to Indian Film Industry. Now Mani Rathnam keeps himself busy with his forthcoming yet to be titled bi lingual starring Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachan, Aishwarya Rai and Vikram.
Oneindia.in wishes him many more happy returns of the day!
