Reason behind Mani Ratnam keeping away ‘Kadal’ stars from public occasions

In movie ‘Kadal’, directed by Mani Ratnam, Karthik’s son Gautam and Radha’s daughter Thulasi are doing roles.  Karthik and Radha debuted through movie ‘Alaigal Oivathillai’. 

Mani Ratnam was maintaining the photographs of both Gautam and Thulasi as secret.  Also, both were not allowed to participate in public occasions.  Tamil fans were eager to see both of their faces. 

But later, Mani Ratnam took both to Andhra and introduced them to fans. Also, Mani Ratnam gave interview to reporters.  Then, Mani Ratnam said:- 

‘It was quite unexpected that I chose Karthik’s son and Radha’s daughter for Kadal.  Whatever be the movie, I give importance to story alone.  Then, I search for suitable characters.  I choose artistes who suit the role to the fullest extent.  I found both Gautam and Thulasi suitable for the roles’ said Mani Ratnam.  

There is reason for the statement by Mani Ratnam.  The reason is that one turns aghast at the very appearance of Thulasi.  As one observes her build, there would sure be doubt whether she is Karthika’s sister or Namita’s sister. 

Mani Ratnam’s talent in direction and Rajiv Menon’s skill in handling the camera would sure win a place for Thulasi.  But, Thulasi’s exotic build would sure result in trouble for directors. 

Now, cinematographer turned director, Ravi K Chandran, happens to be in trouble.  As undertaking direction is huge responsibility in itself, he has taken two risks at a time for movie ‘Yaan’.
