The shooting of the Mani Ratnam directorial Chekka Chivantha Vaanam has been wrapped up. According to sources in the know, the film is currently into the post-production mode and its release date is being worked out by its makers.

Director Mani Ratnam announced this project last year and it went on the floors in February this year. Expectations are way too high for this film, as it is being directed by one of the most celebrated directors in the Indian film industry and also because it happens to be a multi-starrer.

On the occasion of the wrap-up of Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, Simbu, the film’s lead star, released an audio in which he voices his thoughts about working in the movie. In the audio, he says, “We have finally completed Chekka Chivantha Vaanam. Thanks to Mani sir who believed in me and gave an opportunity to act in his film. I never thought of acting in a Mani Ratnam film in my life. Of course, I still regret that I did not act in his Anjali but will make him proud with Chekka Chivantha Vaanam.”

An action thriller, the film features a bevy of stars including Arvind Swami, Silambarasan, Vijay Sethupathi, Arun Vijay, Jyothika, Aditi Rao Hydari, Aishwarya Rajesh and Dayana Erappa. In the film, Simbu is paired opposite Dayana Erappa. Contrary to earlier reports that Vijay Sethupathi would be playing an extended cameo, we hear that he will be appearing in a full length role.

The team is eyeing a September release, provided everything goes as planned. The film has a brilliant technical crew, including AR Rahman for music, Santosh Sivan for camera and A Sreekar Prasad for editing. The film is produced jointly by Mani Ratnam and Subashkaran under their banners Madras Talkies and Lyca Productions respectively. The Telugu dubbed version Nawab will be released simultaneously with the Tamil version.
