santosh sivanYes, the news is indeed true. Cinematographer Santosh Sivan is back with Mani Ratnam. Earlier Manikandan was shooting Ratnam’s film Raavan, which is almost 60 percent complete. But because of Ratnam’s heart attack, the film’s schedule went haywire. And Manikandan had committed his dates for Shah Rukh Khan and Farah Khan’s new film.

Without any options, Ratnam called up his old favourite Santosh Sivan. According to gossipmongers, there is more to this story. It wasnt all well between Ratnam and Manikandan. Because of professional reasons ofcourse. And it was good excuse to part aways.
