Keerthy Suresh is said to have walked out of the Mani movie over a date clash with Rajinikanth's movie Thalaivar 168. She didn't want to miss out on a chance to work with the Tamil superstar and thus chose him over the top director.
The Mahanati actress is on cloud nine after ending the year 2018 on a high. Her performance in the role of yesteryear actress Savitri came in for a lot of praise and the actress has been flooded with offers from top directors since. So maverick director Maniratnam offered her a role in his most ambitious upcoming project Ponniyin Selvan. The Tamil flick has an ensemble cast with the likes of Aishwarya Rai, Karti, Trisha among others. Kalki Krishnamurthy has written the script for his historical drama. The film is produced by Lyca Productions in association with Madras Talkies. The music of the film is composed by AR Rahman and cinematography is handled by Ravi Varman.
On the other hand, Keerthy Suresh, who has lost weight is currently working on Karthik Subburaj's 'Penguin'. She will also mark her Bollywood debut with Ajay Devgn starrer 'Maidaan'.
