Dil Se, which starred Shah Rukh Khan, Manisha Koirala, and Preity Zinta, is considered a classic. In a recent interview with Pinkvilla, we asked the unconventional director if he would ever work with SRK again. “You should ask Shah Rukh,” Ratnam laughs, adding, “I’ll go to him when I have a script ready for him. So everything is just following a script. We only got to know each other at a party. Like, I’m telling you that it’s based on a script idea. “When you think you know which Shah Rukh will be right, I’ll go ask him.”
At the same time, he is getting ready to release Ponniyin Selvan: I (PS 1), an epic period action movie based on Kalki Krishnamurthy’s 1955 novel of the same name. “I believe it is my dream for me.”I’ve always wanted to see this movie, even before I got into movies. When I first read the book, I imagined it as a large screen.Mani Ratnam says, “I didn’t think I’d make it, but everything about it looked like it was made for movies.”
He says, “It has everything: adventure, intrigue, great characters, and all the fun of an Alexandre Dumas movie or story.” “So I think it was a dream I was happy to make and enjoyed every bit of.” Ponniyin Selvan: Vikram, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Jayam Ravi, Karthi, Trisha, and Sobhita Dhulipala are the main stars of I. It is also the 30th time that Mani Ratnam and music composer AR Rahman have worked together. They first did so on the 1992 Tamil romantic thriller Roja.
