Rajni meets Mani!

Rajnikanth’s casual visit to Mani Ratnam’s office has set tongues wagging! The rumour mill is working overtime, with the news that Mani is going to direct Rajni again, 18 years after they did Dalapati!
But Mani watchers are saying that today the noted director is more into meaningful cinema within the commercial format (songs and big stars) than Rajnikanth type larger than life cross commercials. So it is unlikely that the parallel lines will meet, but you can’t rule it out because the combination looks exciting on paper!
Meanwhile Rajni associates say it was a condolence call, as the superstar was not in station when GS, Mani’s brother passed away a few weeks back. But then the question is, why Rajni spent nearly two hours with Mani? The local media feels that they were discussing the one-line story for their next film!
Rajni and Mani Ratnam to work together?
Grapevine is abuzz with rumors that Rajnikanth has finalized his next project. A couple of visits by Rajnikanth to director Mani Ratnam’s office in Chennai have sparked off rumours that the two would come together for a movie next.
After Guru, Mani Ratnam was supposed to commence his next starring Aamir Khan. However with the actor’s Hindi version of Ghajini getting delayed, sources say Mani Ratnam would venture to do a movie with Rajnikanth.
Rajnikanth and Mani Ratnam last came together for Daalapati released in 1991.
Produced by GV Films and directed by Mani Ratnam, Thalapathy featured Mammootty, Shobana and Bhanu Priya besides Rajnikanth.
The familiar story of Karna from the epic Mahabaratha was skillfully modernized with typical ‘Mani Ratnam trademark’ screenplay and dialogues and foot-tapping numbers by Ilayaraja.
