This will be Abhishek and Ratnam's third film together. After the terrific partnership they shared during 'Yuva', which Abhishek describes as his career's first turning point, and 'Guru', which he acknowledges as his second turning point, it doesn't require much calculation to see the creative and commercial viability of the Abhishek-Ratnam pair.
Ratnam will start shooting for the film in Sep with Abhishek and Aishwarya.
According to a source close to the project, 'It's going to be a very intense love story. 'Guru' was more of a biopic with a cavalcade of characters claiming screen space, but this film will focus primarily on the romance. It's a very intense film and Mani's most romantic film to date. It is based on real life characters.'
