Exciting days ahead for team CCV!

Mani Ratnam’s upcoming film Chekka Chivantha Vaanam has been making waves, especially for its mixed bag cast. The film stars Arvind Swami, Vijay Sethupathi, STR, Arun Vijay, Jyothika, Aditi Rao Hydari and Aishwarya Rajesh. Produced by Madras Talkies and Lyca Film Productions, the film went on floors in February and the team has been shooting since then, with the crew now in Abu Dhabi for another schedule.

Photos from the sets of the films have got people excited for the movie, as it features actors Mani Ratnam has never worked with.

While little is known about what the film is about and the characters in it, photos from the sets shared by members of the team show that it’s a serious drama with Jyothika playing an important role.

STR, often called Simbu, features in an important role as well.

There is a lot of bonhomie on the sets of the film, too, with STR and Arun Vijay bonding a lot.


Arvind Swami, who is collaborating with Mani Ratnam for the sixth time, finished shooting for his portions earlier this month. He had thanked the director on Twitter and assured fans that the film is something to look forward to.

Santhosh Sivan, who has been collaborating with the filmmaker for years now, has been regularly updating everybody with photos. Vijay Sethupathi, who joined the film’s sets last month, is playing a crucial character too.

The music will be composed by AR Rahman and lyrics by Vairamuthu. After Kaatru Veliyidai, this is Mani Ratnam’s first film and is slated for a release sometime this year.
