Cinematographer Manikandan has walked out of Mani Rathnam’s film Ravanan. Mani Rathinam is producing and directing the film titled Ravanan which has Vikram and Aishwarya Rai in the lead. This film is also being made in Hindi also. Manikandan was handling the camera for both the films. 50% of the shooting is over. At this juncture Manikandan ahs walked out of this project. Manikandan while speaking about this said,” The shooting of the film Ravanan was supposed to be completed in March.
But due to certain reasons the shooting has been postponed for some more time. I have already given call sheet for Shahrukh Khan’s film. The shooting of this film is to commence from June. This film is a science fiction. I also have to do a lot of research for this film. After this I will be handling camera for a Hindi film Happy New Year to be directed by Farah Khan. Shahrukh Khan is doing the lead role in this film. Both the films are being produced by Shahrukh Khan. Because I had given dates for the both the films I am not in a position to work in Mani Rathnam’s film, Apart from this there is no difference of opinion between me and Mani Rathinam.”
