Aditi Rao Hydari looked like a beautiful dream in the teaser of Mani Ratnam’s Kaatru Veliyidai. This is after a break of two years that a Mani Ratnam film will release- the last one being O Kadhal Kanmani (2015) that became a huge blockbuster. His latest offering to cine buffs, has gotten cine buffs excited, owing to the breathtaking sneak peek.
Though the teaser lasted less than a minute, it was enough to hint that the movie will describe the adjective spectacular.
The movie features Tamil star Karthi opposite Aditi and has been primarily shot in Kashmir, Ooty, and Hyderabad. While Aditi plays the role of the doctor in the film, Karthi’s character is a fighter pilot.
A R Rahman’s soulful music in the background in the teaser is another highlight of it. In the small amount if time, the clip’s visuals encapsulated two contrasting scenes- a desert and a snow-clad forest. The credit for the wondrous background goes to cinematographer Ravi Varman, who earlier weaved magic in Ram-Leela.
The last Tamil movie that Aditi was a part of was Kaashmora co-starring Nayantara and Sri Divya. She also has a cameo in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming movie Padmavati. Speaking of how it was to work with these two acclaimed directors, Aditi told a leading daily:
A week after I wrapped up Mani sir’s film, I started shooting for Sanjay (Bhansali) sir’s Padmavati. His attention to detail, be it dance, music or jewellery, is amazing. I’d stand on my head in a snowstorm for them without asking questions
The Telugu version of Kaatru Veliyidai is titled Cheliyaa.
