The guessing game around the title of Mani Ratnam's next movie with Silambarasan aka Simbu came to an end as the makers announced the details on Friday, February 9. Well, Chekka Chivantha Vaanam is the name of the director's next movie.
It is a multi-starrer in which Simbu, Arvind Swami, Vijay Sethupathi, Dayana Erappa and Aditi Rao Hydari will be seen in lead roles. Prakash Raj, Mansoor Ali Khan and Jayasudha are also part of the supporting cast.
Earlier, there was a buzz that the first look along with the title will be announced on February 3, on the occasion of Simbu's birthday, but there was no update from the makers. It disappointed the fans last week.
The movie is funded by Madras Talkies in association with Lyca Productions. The shooting is expected to begin this month.
Mani Ratnam's favorite AR Rahman is scoring music for the movie, while Santhosh Sivan will handle the cinematography. Sreekar Prasad is the editor of the flick.
The movie comes at a crucial stage for Simbu and Mani Ratnam, whose careers have gone downhill over the last few years due to a few unsuccessful movies at the box office. The fans are hoping that the latest venture will give them the much-needed hit.
