Featuring an ensemble cast of Arvind Swami, Vijay Sethupathi, Simbu, Arun Vijay, Aishwarya Rajesh, Jyothika and Aditi Rao Hydari, it has been learnt that Angamaly Diaries fame Sarath, who played the popular character Appani Ravi from the film, has landed a pivotal role in the film.

Apparently, Sarath’s role was originally offered to Anthony Varghese, who played the lead in Angamaly Diaries. Sarath is said to be elated to bag the opportunity. He joins the sets from March and he’ll be seen playing a very important role.

Sarath is already part of two Tamil projects and one among them happens to be Vishal’s Sandakozhi 2, in which he plays a negative character. He has already completed shooting for the Linguswamy directorial which is slated to hit the screens this summer.

Touted to be a socio-political drama, which will throw light on issues like industrial Pollution, environment safety, the film will also take on the loopholes in our political system. Actor Simbu is said to play an engineer. The 4 heroes are said to play 4 brothers.The film went on floors on February 12 in the city.

To be bankrolled by Madras Talkies, double Oscar-winning AR Rahman has been roped in compose the music. Lensman Santosh Sivan has will crank the camera and it’ll be his sixth collaboration with Ratnam.

Chekka Chivantha Vaanam will also release in Telugu as Nawab and while interest around the film are skyrocketing, expectations are high as well.

Various industry sources have confirmed that the film will be an action-thriller and will be a departure from the filmmaker’s usual style of films. Mani Ratnam has pinned high hopes on this project following the debacle of Kaatru Veliyidai, which sank without a trace at the box-office last year.
