It is nothing but a matter of pride when you are chosen for a prestigious project by an acclaimed filmmaker but it does come as a surprise when the filmmaker goes for heroes from various languages except your own. The maverick Mani Ratnam has done just that now.
There are no two words when we say Tollywood is the biggest business area when it comes to the south cinema circuit. So, any filmmaker who takes a noted name from Telugu for a multi-starrer is bound to make huge returns. However, Mani Ratnam chose to take a different path.
For his next project he has roped in lady killer Aravind Swamy, the super talented Vijay Sethupathi, Malayalam star Fahaadh Faasil and Simbu. Given his following in Telugu audience, the inclusion of a Telugu hero would certainly create a huge impact. Many say this is nothing short of an insult to our folks.
