Mani Ratnam bagged a lot of super hit movies in the past by filming movies in his own style. Any South star would take it as an honor to star in his films. Without any hesitation, the actors used to give him dates. However, things changed, and Mani Ratnam has been facing back to back flops from the past few years. Even the star celebrities are afraid to do a movie with him.
Recently, so many rumors that some Tollywood heroes signed projects with Mani Ratnam are coming out. Initially, there was a buzz that Mani Ratnam narrated a beautiful love story to Mahesh Babu, and the shooting will start soon. However, the shooting never started. Later there was a talk that Ram Charan has signed a project with Mani Ratnam and it never happened too. The current news is stating that Natural Star Nani who is at the peak stage of his career with consecutive hits is starring in a multi-starrer movie under the direction of Mani Ratnam in Kollywood.
Sources denied the rumor stating that as Nani is happy with back to back hits, he doesn't want to take a risk with Mani Ratnam and politely declined the offer. Mani Ratnam's upcoming movie will start shooting from January whereas the Ala Modalaindi actor Nani is busy with two movies and there is no way that Nani can start shooting from January. So, we can say that Nani is not a part of Mani Ratnam's upcoming film.
