Chekka Chivantha Vaanam First Look: Mani Ratnam & Simbu's Next Film's Poster Unveiled

Chekka Chivantha Vaanam First Look: Mani Ratnam & Simbu's Next Film's Poster Unveiled

The project has incomparably been one of the most talked about films right from its inception, especially after Mani's last film Kaatru Veliyidai received enormous flak. Aravind Swamy, Simbu and Vijay Sethupathi will be seen in the lead roles.

The poster, tinted in shades of sunrise or perhaps sunset, is a flawless reference to the film's title.

Mani Ratnam's multi-starrer project has been titled Chekka Chivantha Vaanam in Tamil and Nawab in Telugu.

Madras Talkies, Mani Ratnam's production house and the co-producers for this film, gave out the rest of the list - Jyothika, Jayasudha, Prakash Raj, Thiyagarajan, Aditi Rao Hydari, model Dayana Erappa and Mansoor Ali Khan among others are also part of the film.

The last time director Mani Ratnam did a film with a star-studded ensemble cast was 14 years ago - Aaytha Ezhuthu.

Talking about getting on board this film, a euphoric Arun Vijay says, "I'm very excited to be part of such a huge project".

AR Rahman is the film's music director, and the lyrics will be penned by Vairamuthu.

Actor Aditi Rao Hydari had just recently confirmed that she would be working with the ace director. Santosh Sivan will handle the cinematography. While Sharmishta Roy has been roped in for art design, Eka Lakhani is signed as the film's costume designer.

This is Mani Ratnam's 26th directorial venture.

Actor Simbu has been working out intensely for this project with Mani Ratnam.

It was earlier confirmed that actor Vijay Sethupathi will be seen as a cop in the film. The actor was last seen in Anbanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan, that bombed at the box office.
