We already know that ace director Mani Ratnam's upcoming movie is going to be 'Ponniyin Selvan' which is his dream project. The film features star actors like Vikram, Karthi, Jayam Ravi, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Trisha, etc in the lead roles.
However, due to the coronavirus pandemic and country lockdown, the makers have halted the shooting of the film. Now, even if the makers want to resume the shooting, as it is a period drama, the shooting demands hundreds of extra crew members to be present on the sets. It is highly impossible because of the coronavirus pandemic. On this note, rumours are now coming out that Mani Ratnam is moving on to his next project which is going to be the sequel of his blockbuster movie, 'Roja'. The sequel is going to have a completely different story. Another interesting thing is that the movie is going to enter the OTP platforms by producing a web series. The web series is going to have nine stories based on Navarasas in Indian Mythology. Mani Ratnam will bankroll this project. Apart from Mani Ratnam, four more directors Gautham Vasudev Menon, Bejoy Nambiar, Arvind Swamy, Karthick Naren are going to be a part of this mega project.
