Mani Ratnam’s films usually don’t have comedians. Vivekh did play a role in Alaipayuthe, but as a character artiste and not a comedian. Now the ace director has roped in Malayalam comedian Baiju for Kadal. The actor is said to have impressed Mani with his natural acting skills.
Meanwhile, the shoot for Kadal is on in full swing. Arvind Swamy recently posted in his micro-blogging site, “Getting through the twists and turns of the script. Interesting shoot ahead.”
Kadal stars Gautham Karthik, Thulasi Nair, Arvind Swamy, Ponvannan, Pasupathy, Lakshmi Manchu and Thambi Ramaiah. The film has AR Rahman’s compositions, Rajiv Menon’s cinematography and Sreekar Prasad’s editing.
