Ace filmmaker Mani Ratnamâ€™s next directorial titled Kaatru Veliyidai starring Karthi and Aditi Rao Hydari in the titular roles, went on the floors last month in Ooty.
Tipped to be a romantic drama set against the backdrop of Kashmir, Karthi plays a pilot in the film, which will feature Aditi in the role of a doctor.
During a recent media interaction, Karthi revealed that he will be sporting three different looks in the film including a fully shaven look and he has completed 60 per cent of the shoot.
Mani Ratnam recently completed the first schedule in Ooty, where some important scenes were canned, and the team will be moving to Kashmir in the second week of August for the next schedule.
The movie has an enviable star cast, which includes Shraddha Srinath, RJ Balaji, Delhi Ganesh, Lalitha and Rukmini Vijayakumar.
Double Oscar-winning composer A.R Rahman will compose the tunes, while ace lensman Ravi Varman will crank the camera and Sreekar Prasad will be doing the editing.
Produced by Madras Talkies, the makers are planning to release the film towards the end of this year or early next year.
