The latest we hear about this film is thatManiratnam has signed in Bollywood actorSonam Kapoor as the female lead. Sonam has been the favorite and most sought after actress of Tamil film makers, bus she couldn’t make her South debut due to her busy schedules in Bollywood.
There is no official confirmation regarding this but buzz says that Sonam would be more than happy to make debut with Mani’s film. Karthik son Gautham is playing the lead role in this film which would be made in Telugu and Tamil. In Tamil this film is titled Pookadai.
“Since Ek Deewana Tha is a love story, Rahman was keen to release its music at the most iconic romantic place. So, he suggested that the film’s score be launched at the Taj. And the filmmakers immediately agreed,” says a unit member.
Rahman had composed the popular tracks for Telugu 2010 hit, Ye Maaya Chesave, of which the Prateik-Amy Jackson starrer is a remake.
Ek Deewana Tha filmmakers are now working hard to obtain permission for a short performance by Rahman at the venue, as government authorities are very strict about allowing public functions around one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
Although things are hush-hush about the music release and the performance, Vijay Singh of Fox Star Studios — producer of Ek Deewana Tha — confirms, saying: “Yes we are planning to release the music next week of Ek Deewana Tha at the Taj Mahal in Agra. Let’s see how it goes.”
The film will be shot in international locations, predominantly in the United Kingdom with the active support of the UK government.
One of the reasons for this casting by Mani is because both Gautham and Thulasi have been kept away from the eyes of the media and he'll be able to weave fresh magic, and wow audience with these debutants in his film.
It is also said that Mani Ratnam held a test shoot to test the chemistry between his lead stars which turned out well. He has also asked his lead stars to not speak about this film; 'Pookadai' will go on floors shortly in the rural areas of Tamil Nadu.
Meanwhile Mani's fans are already all eyes for everything about this project as Mani Ratnam, through this film, will be back to what he is best, romantic stories which will smitten one and all.
Tunes will be composed by AR Rahman.
