Mani Ratnam Planning for a Period Film

After making mythological inspired film, Raavan, Mani Ratnam is back again into action and planning to make a period film set on the 15th century. Apparently, the filmmaker will not take his favorites, Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.

Interestingly, Mani has decided to make a film only in Tamil starring Vikram and Mahesh Babu.  A source says

“Mani Ratnam’s next will not be a bilingual, something he has been doing for a while now.  The movie has a lot of pre-production work to be done and currently the makers are researching on the same. The lead actresses still need to be finalised.”

The movie will go on floors next year and a lot of it will be shot in Kerala, which has been one of Mani Ratnam’s favorites for a while.
