Mani Ratnam, Thota Tharani to join hands

Nearly after two decades, ace director Mani Ratnam and art director Thota Tharani will join hands for a movie.

Mani Ratnam is said to have roped in Thota Tharani to be part of his technical crew for his dream project Ponniyin Selvan. The director has asked Thota Tharani to recreate the Chola era set.

The movie is now in the pre-production stage. Cinematography is by Ravi Varman. The movie is expected to go on floors in December and will be bankrolled by Lyca Productions. The film stars Amitabh Bachchan, Mohan Babu, Aishwarya Rai, Vikram, Jayam Ravi and Karthi Sivakumar in lead roles. Music is by AR Rahman and has lyrics by Vairamuthu.

Thota Tharani and Mani Ratnam last worked together for Bombay in 1995. They also worked together for Geetanjali, Anjali, ThirudaThiruda, Agni Natchathiram, Nayagan and Thalapathy.
