During the promotions of "Dhruva", Ram Charan informed that he might sign Mani Ratnam's movie in 2017. Strong buzz is that he has officially signed the movie now. It may go to the sets shortly.
Currently Mani Ratnam is starting off the promotions of his upcoming romantic drama "Cheliya" which is slated for release on 7th April.
After the release of this movie, Mani Ratnam will start be working on the script of Ram Charan's movie, a source said. This is going to be romantic action drama.
The great director from Madras is planning to launch the movie post summer Holidays. By then Ram Charan will be completing major portion of Sukumar's love story that he is currently shooting for. So, he would easily join Mani Ratnam's sets. There after he will be shooting both movies on parallel way.
It was Mani Ratnam who suggested Ram Charan to do films like "Dhruva" to come out from the mass-hero image and the trick did work for him.
