After ‘Kabali’, Ranjith’s next is ‘Manjal’Published: November 13, 2015
After he completed ‘Madras’ and before he could commit Superstar Rajinikanth’s ‘Kabali’, director Pa Ranjith was about to start a film titled ‘Manjal’, which is about an extremely rich man and the issues surrounding him.
“However, things took a turn after Rajini asked him to wield the megaphone for his next and Ranjith had to put ‘Manjal’ on hold. He will start the project once he is done with ‘Kabali’,” said sources.
Meanwhile, no member of ‘Kabali’ team, including Rajini, returned to Chennai for Deepavali because of work and they celebrated the festival of lights on the movie’s sets itself.
A huge cake, which had the letters KABALI engraved on it, was cut by the ‘thalaivar’ and distributed to unit members. “Since the shoot was going on in brisk pace and other members of the team stayed in Malaysia, Rajini did not want to go to the home. He stayed with them and celebrated Deepavali,” sources added.
Radhika Apte plays the leading lady of ‘Kabali’, which also has Kishore, Attakathi Dinesh, Kalaiarasan and others in key roles. Music is by Santhosh Narayanan, who is said to have come out with a ‘mass’ theme music.
