Mani Ratnam turns Tamil teacher

Legendary auteur Mani Ratnam is currently shooting a romantic drama titled Kaatru Veliyidai. The film features Tamil star Karthi and Bollywood actress Aditi Rao Hydari.

It is already reported that Karthi underwent pilot training for his role. On the other hand, Aditi is taking Tamil lessons to perfect her diction and dialogue delivery, and none other than Mani Ratnam himself is helping her learn the language.

Apparently, Aditi has been learning Tamil for the past one month under Mani’s guidance in Chennai and Mani is bettering her accent and intonation, which in turn will help Aditi give authentic reactions.
