Acclaimed director Mani Ratnam’s latest film “Raavana” is nearing completion and the shooting will conclude by the end of September.
Mani is shooting the climax scenes of the film at Malshej Ghats near Mumbai. The shoot involves key actors Aishwarya Rai, Abhishek Bachchan, Vikram and Munnah. This month long schedule will also have Prithiviraj, Prabhu, Karthik and Govinda participating.
“Raavana” has been beset with unforeseen delays as Mani suffered a mild heart attack and Aishwarya was indisposed during the shoot. The unit also encountered delays as they could not get permission from forest authorities in time.
“Raavana” is slated for release for Sankranthi in the month of January 2010.
