Legendary Director Mani Ratnam tried his best to rope in Mahesh Babu in his next film. Despite making multiple attempts Mani Ratnam couldn't get the dates of Mahesh Babu. Even though Nagarjuna readily accepted to be a part of that film, Mahesh didn't approve the subject for reasons best known to him.
Later Mani Ratnam tried for the dates of other heroes too. Rumor has it that Mani Ratnam tried to rope in Charan and Arjun, but that too didn't materialize. Mani Ratnam has finally given up on that multi starrer and is planning to do a romantic drama as his next. If the sources are to be believed, Mani Ratnam's next would be a remake of his classic Mouna Ragam.
Mani Ratnam roped in Dulquar Rahman (Mammootty's son) and Nithya Menen for this film. Dulquar is making waves in Malayalam film industry and Nithya is a well known actress in all South Indian languages. Mani Ratnam is planning to make this film in Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam as per the buzz.
