Maniratnam’s dream project Film Raavan facing so many obstacles in its way. The first schedule came to a grinding halt when he fell ill and hospitalized. Later, cinematographer Manikandan has left the project because his call sheets for the film Raavan was over.
This has adversely affected the project and Maniratnam obliged to reshoot entire film to maintain flow.
Maniratnam planned to shoot the second schedule of the film in the dense forests of Kerala. But, even in the dense forests he couldn’t escape from the troubles. This time the trouble surfaced in the shape of Ooty district transport officials. They have seized the car vans of Bollywood actress aishwarya Roy and Vikram, for not having valid documents for the vehicles. Ash and Vikram who uses the vehicles for resting during the brakes, has no other option except to leave the location immediately as they have no shelter the forest. Hence, Maniratnam obliged to pack up and reschedule his project. It seems there is no ending for the teething problems for Rawan.
