Finally, after facing a lot of constraints regarding cast and call sheet issues, Mani Ratnam’s upcoming film finally went on floors recently with Aditi Rao Hydari in the lead role. Now, the first look poster of the film is out and one can expect another OK Kanmani from the ace director.
The title of the film, Kaatru Veliyidai, is the opening line of a Tamil poem penned by legendary poet Bharathiyar which means ‘Breezy Expanse’.
The poster does not reveal much about the film. However, it perfectly sets the tone for the romantic drama. Karthi is seen with a different hairdo in the picture, and you get to see only a glimpse of Aditi.

After Mani Ratnam’s highly successful OK Kanmani, this one also follows the genres of romance and family drama. It will see Karthi play an air force pilot with Aditi as his lady love. The film will also feature popular RJ Balaji in a small role as Karthi’s friend.
With music by AR Rahman, Kaatru Veliyidai is produced by Mani Ratnam’s home banner Madras Talkies. Sri Thenandal Films has acquired its Tamil Nadu theatrical rights. It will simultaneously be made in Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam.
