The 96 actress replaced Nayanthara’s place in the film.
Mani Ratnam is currently busy with the pre-production of the film. The film’s first schedule is touted to go on floors from the 12th of December in Thailand. Trisha’s last film with the ace director was the blockbuster Ayudha Ezhuthu.
A source close to the team earlier confirmed that Mani Ratnam has been holding back all the required announcements since he has always believed in complete preparation before he kickstarts. He is currently planning various training sessions and activities for the actors and his team as a part of his pre-production preps.
As a treat to the fans, Madras Talkies has finally released a poster confirming the film and Trisha has just retweeted the poster writing, “Living The Dream”.
