If the industry grapevine is anything to go by, Tanu Weds Manu fame R Madhavan might reunite with filmmaker Mani Ratnam for the fourth time. The duo had previously worked in Tamil films Alaipayuthey, Kannathil Muthamittal and Aayutha Ezhuthu. Ratnam has played pivotal role in the growth of Madhavan’s career and it would be really interesting to see them reunite at this stage in Madhavan’s career. Reliable sources close to the Roja filmmaker have confirmed that talks have been initiated with Madhavan for a multi-starrer and the project might also star Malayalam star Fahadh Faasil, and Ratnam is planning the film as a bilingual.

“Nothing has been finalised yet. Mani sir is in talks with Madhavan and Fahadh but both of them are yet to give their nod. It’s going to take a few more weeks before we can even expect something concrete. Madhavan has a Hindi film in his kitty and he needs to work out his dates if he signs this project. Fahadh is excited about the idea but he is yet to take a call as he is also busy with prior commitments,” a source said.

Unlike most of his films including his last outing Kaatru Veliyidai, Ratnam’s next won’t be a romantic flick. The source confirmed that he is working on an action-thriller and is not too keen on exploring romance genre following the debacle of Kaatru Veliyidai. While A.R Rahman will compose tunes, Santhosh Sivan will crank the camera. The rest of the cast and crew are on the verge of being finalised. Ratnam hopes to go on the floors from September.
