After the success of O Kadhal Kanmani, veteran director Mani Ratnam is all set to spread his magic again with yet another Tamil romantic tale titled Kaatru Veliyidai. Only a few actresses like Manisha Koirala and Aishwarya Rai from Bollywood have had the unique opportunity to work with him in his films like Dil Se, Bombay, and Guru and Raavan respectively. This time, its Aditi Rao Hydari who has been handpicked by the director for his next magnum opus.
Mani Ratnam’s heroines are always known for their delicate and innocent looks coupled with powerful performances. Aditi, known for her porcelain looks and sensitive yet powerful performance was an instant fit for the lead role.
Aditi has started shooting for the film and everyone on the sets think that the young actress reminds them of Manisha Koirala from her Bombay and Dil Se days.
“When we shot with Aditi on the first day, she reminded everyone of Manisha Koirala from Dil Se who was the poster girl of innocence clubbed with performance. It’s a lethal combination and one we are eager to watch come alive again with Aditi,” a source from the film said.
A few days ago, Aditi has shared the first look of her upcoming film which received amazing response from the audieces.
