Maranthen Mannithen is actress Lakshmi Manchu’s first Tamil production venture, starring Aadhi and Taapsee in the lead. The audio launch of the film happened recently, and the debut producer had no intentions of losing the opportunity to thank every soul that had made the film possible.
While doing so, she narrated how roping in Maestro Ilayaraja happened. The pretty lass was full of emotions and said, “I approached Raja sir and said I’m doing a film. I requested him to do the music.”
Without any hesitation he accepted to do it, said the actress. “Then I explained him my financial constrain. Even before I finished, he stopped me and said he doesn’t want any payment immediately and that he’ll take the money after the release,” exclaimed Lakshmi, thanking him for his kind gesture.
She also thanked Taapsee, who according to Lakshmi, accepted the project without even listening to the script. She added, “In Telugu, I introduced Taapsee to the industry and today her star status shines on me and I’m very proud about that.”
