Mani Ratnam, AR Rahman and a romance — now that sounds like a cine fan’s dream come true. The filmmaker has released the poster of his next, Kaatru Veliyidai, with Karthi and Aditi Rao Hydari headlining the film. The film’s poster was launched on social media minus the fanfare that we associate with such announcements.
The Wazir actress took to Twitter to share the first look of the film.

The film will bring back the evergreen combination of Ratnam and composer AR Rahman. Ravi Varman will capture the film on his lens and the genre will be romance, Ratnam’s USP. Mani Ratnam is producing the movie under his home banner of Madras Talkies.
