    Bharathiraja Teams Up With His Son Manoj For A New Project!


    Actor Mahat Raghavendra of Mankatha and Jilla fame will play the lead in a yet-untitled Tamil project, which will be directed by actor Manoj Bharathiraja and produced by his father and veteran film-maker Bharathiraja.

    "This is going to be a very interesting project. It's such an honour to be working with Bharathiraja sir, who will be producing this film while son Manoj will direct it," Mahat told IANS.

    He also added that the regular shooting of the project will start from March.

    Without divulging much information, Mahat said the film will remain very special in his career. Mahat, meanwhile, is currently busy shooting for his Telugu film She.

    Interestingly, Manoj had earlier announced that he would make his directorial debut through Sigappu Rojakkal 2, a film inspired by his father's 1978 film Sigappu Rojakkal featuring Kamal Haasan and Sridevi in the lead.

    Though this project began way back in 2009, it failed to materialize until last year when the Taj Mahal actor announced that he would kick-start the film by roping in a newcomer named Vishakan.

    With no updates pertaining to Sigappu Rojakkal 2, speculations are rife that Manoj might've shelved the project. Another hearsay has it that Mahat might've replaced Vishakan and that Manoj might revive his long-awaited flick with Mahat in the lead.
