The ‘Raavan’ team has been into a lot lately. First it was the director Mani Ratnam becoming ill to the point of getting hospitalized. Now it is his camera man for the film Manikandan walking out on him.
The reason for Manikandan quitting is because he seems to committed himself to a Farah Khan project that is about to begin in June. With Mani getting ill and the project stalling a getting delayed Manikandan seems to have not fulfilled his commitment to Mani Ratnam.
So what happens now? Mani Ratnam has called his old friend and ace cinematographer Santosh Sivan to complete his project ‘Raavan’ successfully. With more than 60 percent of the film complete and his cinematographer walking out on him Mani Ratnam is confident that Santosh will do justice to the film.
A friend in need is a friend indeed!
The Mani Ratnam – Santosh Sivan duo have churned out blockbuster films like ‘Roja’, ‘Thalapathi’, ‘Iruvar’ and ‘Uyire’ the Hindi version being ‘Dilse’.
