Rensil D'Silva - Mani Ratnam co-script is a biopic!

Close on the heels of filmmaker Mani Ratnam finally starting work on a new film came the buzz that filmmaker Rensil D'Silva was making a biopic on Mani Ratnam. Rensil, sources said, has even finished scripting the flick, and was looking for someone to play Mani.

But looks like there's no truth whatsoever to this rumour. For, when we got in touch with Rensil, he clarified that he is not making a biopic on Mani Ratnam and was misquoted.

Rensil D’Silva ia an Indian film director and screenplay writer. He wrote the screenplay for Rang De Basanti which received critical acclaims and won commercial success. Rensil also written scripts for 'Kurbaan', 'Student of the Year' and more recently 'Ungli', said Ratnam is highly impressed by the way the script is shaping up.

Now it is heard that he is directing a film that he and Mani Rathnam has written. When asked about it he clarified that, “It's a film Mani and I have written together. We'd started work on it in 2007, and at that time, Mani had wanted me to direct it.

So, I had just said that Mani and I had this script which I wanted to direct next. It's a biopic, about a businessman's travels and his rags-to-riches story, a man who started his own company and made it big,”

He also added that “And now, I am making this film with Karan Johar. But still, even though the movie is not on Mani, it's got his magical touch in dialogues and visualization of the story.”

Mani, meanwhile, is busy filming his new film, an urban love story set in Chennai and Mumbai, starring Dulquer Salmaan and Nithya Menen.
