Fans are both happy and upset with Mani Ratnam and here’s why

Ace director Mani Ratnam and production designer Thotta Tharani had earlier worked together in films such as ‘Nayakan’ and ‘Thalapathy’ for which the latter received the National and Tamil Nadu State Awards respectively.

After a long gap, the two have reunited, for Mani Ratnam’s magnum opus ‘Ponniyin Selvan’.  This has brought happiness to fans. The mega budget project based on Kalki’s work is jointly bankrolled by Mani Ratnam’s Madras Talkies and Subaskaran’s Lyca Productions.

Meanwhile, the decision of Mani Ratnam and A R Rahman to rope in Vairamuthu to pen lyrics for the movie has earned opposition from various quarters, since the lyricist recently faced sexual allegations under #MeToo movement.

Here are a few tweets opposing the move: “Rahman sister AR Reihan told @arrahman will not work with controversial people. As a fan I am very disappointed. @arrahman please don’t work with molesters like vairamuthu. It’s a shame 😒

“Sorry….big Rahman fan but this does not do well. I really hope ARR steps down from this project. @Chinmayi has been fighting so hard and this is the time people of his stature need to take sides.”

“@arrahman and mani ratnam shouldn’t have included vairamuthu. There are other lyricists of almost equal talent like thamarai or umadevi or even madan karky.”

“How can a molester like Vairamuthu be used in such a prestigeous project 👎👎👎👎. I will watch this only in pirated portals. Not planning to spend my money on this shit.”
