Why Mani Ratnam Ignores Telugu Actors?

Mani Ratnam is one of the stalwarts in South cinema. He is considered to be one of the country’s most legendary filmmakers. The director is currently working on a film titled Thug Life, with Kamal Haasan playing the lead role. Meanwhile, the film also features star heroes from the South. But, what’s always surprising is Mani Ratnam’s lack of interest in roping in actors from Telugu.

Opposite Kamal Haasan, the talented actress Trisha will be seen, while actors Jayam Ravi, Dulquer Salmaan, and Siddharth have been announced to play pivotal roles. Earlier, Mani Ratnam worked with these actors and in his previous films where there is a demand for other language heroes, Mani Ratnam picked actors from Tamil and Malayalam.

Mani Ratnam enjoys a big market in Telugu, but he always ignores actors from Telugu, which the netizens are currently highlighting, especially after he finalized the cast for Thug Life. Mani Ratnam has never opened up on the same but this is one complaint that is continuously surrounding the celebrated filmmaker.

Renowned musician AR Rahman is helming the music for the film. The complete details of the film will be out soon.
