Kamal Hassan and Saif Ali Khan team up for a Tamil-Hindi political thriller, with a score by A R Rahman.
After the acclaimed O Kadhal Kanmani, Mani Ratnam's upcoming project, a yet-to-be-titled film starring A-listers Karthi, Dulquer Salmaan, Nithya Menon and Keerthy Suresh, is creating expected buzz.
Latest reports suggest the film will be a bilingual, to be shot simultaneously in Tamil and Telugu.
While the Tamil version's cast remains the quartet mentioned above, Mani Sir is currently on the lookout for a suitable cast for the Telugu version, which has resulted in the project, initially scheduled to go on floors in December, getting delayed.
A R Rahman (who else?!) will score the music while Ravi Varman will be behind the camera.
