Mani on collaborating with Kamal again

In January this year, Mani was talking at the CNN-News18 Indian Of The Year 2023 event. When Mani was asked why it took so long to collaborate with Kamal after 1987’s Nayakan, he said, “It’s tough when you have an actor of that capability, someone who has done several things. So unless you have at least something halfway solid to give, you don’t go to him just because you’ve worked together before. Hopefully, we will now be able to bring a unique character on-screen in our next.”

About Thug Life

Thug Life also stars Trisha, Gautham Karthik, and Aishwarya Lekshmi. Composer AR Rahman, cinematographer Ravi K Chandran and editor Sreekar Prasad form the crew. The film marks Kamal and Mani’s reunion after 36 years.
