say that an actor’s career attains fulfillment
only if he has acted under Mani Ratnam at least
once. He is the man who has the knack to bring
out the best from many actors, be it Madhavan,
Aravind Swamy, Abhishekh Bachchan or Aishwarya
Rai. We need not talk about his hit record here.
The genres that he has traversed over his career
have a range that can make many contemporaries
look ordinary. No one would turn down an opportunity
to work with him. His production house Madras
Talkies is a synonym for quality. Bollywood or
Kollywood, he reigns where he chooses to.
