Maverick filmmaker Mani Ratnam is all set to kick-start his ambitious film ‘Ponniyin Selvan’ by next year. During this interim, he is now producing a film titled ‘Vaanam Kottattum’, which will be directed by his long time associate Dhana, who had earlier made the movie titled ‘Padai Veeran’. Vikram Prabhu is playing the lead role in this film, which will have Madonna Sebastian as his love interest and Aishwarya Rajesh as his sister. Govind Vasantha of ‘96’ fame is composing music for this movie and cinematography is handled by ‘Abhiyum Naanum’ fame Preetha. The story and dialogues are written by both Mani Ratnam and Dhana. It looks like the film is based on love and relationship. The shooting of this film is expected to go on floors from this July and is produced by Mani Ratnam for Madras Talkies.
