While Aditi Rao Hydari’s films in 2017 failed at the box office, her performance in these films received immense appreciation from critics and audience alike. However, 2018 seems to have started on a good note. Aditi appeared in a cameo role in Padmaavat, has confirmed that she is set to reunite with filmmaker Mani Ratnam for another Tamil film.
Aditi Rao last collaborated with Mani Ratnam in “Kaatru Veliyidai” last year. Confirming this development, Aditi said she couldn’t have hoped for a better start to 2018.
Aditi Rao Hydari will be teaming up with Mani Ratnam again for the multi-starrer the filmmaker is working on currently. Latest reports confirm that Aditi Rao Hydari has been signed on for the film which also stars Jyothika, Fahadh Faasil, Simbu, Aishwarya Rajesh and Arvind Swami in the lead roles, It is also rumoured that senior actors Prakash Raj and Jayasudha will be seen playing pivotal roles in the yet-untitled project.
“I’d love to be,” she laughed, and added: “Which actress wouldn’t want to work with Mani Ratnam sir, and that too twice within one year? I learnt so much while doing ‘Kaatru Veliyidai’. I am sure this time again I will come away with something very valuable.”
This movie is going to be bankrolled by Madras Talkies and has audience pinning high expectations on this. Mani Ratnam’s team is always a set of technicians who have been close to him over years. For this movie as well, Cinematographer Santosh Sivan has been approached to cast his spell behind the lens and thus making it his sixth time with Mani Ratnam. Industry sources have confirmed that the film will be an action-thriller and will be a welcome departure from the filmmaker’s usual style of films.
