The kinds of stories Maniratnam picks up for his films are always interesting. After making the 1993 serial blasts as the backdrop for "Bombay" he got immense acclaim as a filmmaker. And his latest movie will also have such similar backdrop involving political touch.
We hear that Mani's latest movie "Nawab" will be shot in the backdrop of a controversial nuclear plant in Tamilnadu and how some activists will be raising voice against it. The film will be typically a story of four brothers and one powerful girl. While there are big names like Arvind Swamy who is playing a politician in the movie and Prakash Raj who got an interesting role are linked with this film, the powerful lady's role is being played by talented hottie Aditi Rao Hydari. But we have to see who will be the four brothers in the film. And we have Vijay Sethupathi will be playing a powerful cop while Arun Vijay is said to be the lead antagonist
Mani sir rarely repeats a heroine in his films and we have the likes of Manisha Koirala and Aishwarya Rai picked by him twice or earlier. Now we have Aditi Rao Hydari getting similar acclaim after Cheliya movie. For becoming part of this film, Aditi has also walked out of her second Telugu flick where she's supposed to pair up with Venkatesh while her debut Telugu film is with Sudheer Babu.
We have to see how far Aditi will impress this time in the South. This half Telugu half Muslim girl actually did only glamorous roles in Bollywood, but her south films are turning out to be interesting as they are giving her scope to perform.
