Mani Ratnam: Solo looks promising
The filmmaker said he is looking forward to the release of his erstwhile assistant Bejoy Nambiar's bilingual
Filmmaker Mani Ratnam is eagerly looking forward to the release of upcoming Malayalam-Tamil bilingual drama Solo, directed by his erstwhile assistant Bejoy Nambiar. “Going by the first glimpse of the film, it looks very promising. I’m looking forward to the film,” he said.
Solo, starring Dulquer Salmaan in the lead, is an anthology of four stories with a mythical touch. “It’s a collection of four different stories on earth, water, fire and wind. I can’t divulge more about the plot at this moment,” Nambiar says, reiterating that the film is a genuine bilingual. “We have shot every scene twice. Once in Tamil and the second time in Malayalam. It was like shooting two films at the cost and time of making one film,” he added.
The film, which is gearing up for a September release, also stars Arthi Venkatesh, Dhansikaa, Dino Morea, Neha Sharma and Sruthi Hariharan. It is jointly produced by Getaway Films and Abaam Films.
