If there is one filmmaker whom every actor is desperate to work with him, it has to be Mani Ratnam. The film to be directed by Mani’s assistant Shiva is a biopic which Mani himself scripted.
Vivek Oberoi signed up without a second thought. Shaad Ali is the executive director of the film. Mani Ratnam was in for a shock, when Sonam Kapoor refused to play the lead.
It may be noted that even Suhasini refused Mani Ratnam in her hay days, before their marriage.
