Ponniyin Selvan that was scheduled to have been directed by Mani Ratnam may have been a non-starter but that has not deterred the legendary filmmaker, who is all set to begin work on a fresh project. It has been confirmed that Arya and Karthik's son, Gautam will be the male leads.
There was some confusion over this, as friends and well-wishers of Arya felt that he was doing too many multi-starrers and he should concentrate on solo hero projects. But since this is the great Mani Ratnam in question, Arya agreed and has put all speculations to rest. Now if they would only announce the heroines!
