At least, This is the news which is presently trending on Internet News-Portals. The filmmaker is secretly gearing up for a bilingual Tamil and Hindi movie made on the issue of India and Pakistan. As per the reports, Mani has zeroed in on Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor to play the lead roles. Now, the director has started finalising his technical team.

Well, To be on the Reality Side, The ace Film maker is not planning any such project. In fact, The master movie maker has not even decided the star-cast of his next film as of now. The insiders (From the Production House, Madras Talkies) chirped about Mani's next film being a Period Love Story with two boys and one girl in the lead. And as usual, Mani Ratnam maintains his secrecy over the project. The sources also agreed this one to be a Hindi Language film after a long gap.
