Mani Ratnam opts for Yuvan Shankar Raja this time. He had worked for ten films with Ilayaraja and now ‘Raavanan’ turns his tenth film with AR Rahman. For his next film which was supposed to be directed by Mani Ratnam himself will have music by Yuvan Shankar Raja.

This will be a Hindi film as well. The film is going to be produced by Madras Talkies and Mani Ratnam who had thought of directing this film turned it over to his Associate Director Shivakumar. This is now decided to be Mani Ratnam’s production venture for his associate.

The crew has frozen Vivek Oberoi for the lead role with a Bollywood actress playing the female lead. Mani Ratnam approached Sonam Kapoor but the actress declined the offer for it was not a Mani Ratnam direction venture.

Yuvan Shankar Raja, elated with the opportunity, confirmed the news, he says, “I have been roped in for a Hindi movie to be produced by Mani Ratnam and directed by Shivakumar. I am excited to be a part of the project. It is going to be a different attempt.”

Mani Ratnam highlights more of Southern talents to Bollywood. This time Mani Ratnam is all set to do that again with Yuvan Shankar Raja. Not all Madras Talkies production ventures had AR Rahman playing the music. AR Rahman did the Music Direction only for films directed by Mani Ratnman.

Earlier, Yuvan Shankar Raja’s brother Karthik Raja was the Music Director of the film ‘Dum Dum Dum’ which was produced by Mani Ratnam but was directed by Mani Ratnam’s Assistant Director ‘Azhagamperumal’

    yuvan is the best composer that i have ever listen. the films were big hit when the mani was with illayaraja(nayakudu,dalapati,gharshana,anjali,geetanjali…etc. b’coz illayaraja will give the heart effective tunes according to the situations& good back ground music. but rehman can not. no film of rehman got hit only with music).now mani joins with yuvan, here onwards all the films will be hit.
