Mani Ratnam working overtime
It is a well known fact that Mani Ratnam is a strict disciplinarian.
The director doesn’t mind pulling up even big stars if they don’t follow the schedule. His shoots begin and end on time. But if the deadline is not met, Mani makes it a point to finish the schedule no matter what. Something like this happened with Govinda’s and NikhiDwivedi’s shoot recently. Govinda and Nikhil are playing key roles in Ratnam’s Raavan that also stars Abhishek and Aishwarya Bachchan.
A unit member informed us, “Mani was shooting crucial scenes with Govinda and Nikhil at Pollachi in Tamil Nadu. The shoot got slightly delayed and Mani shot with Govinda and Nikhil for 34 hours continuously, thus completing his schedule on time.”
The shoot began at 4 pm on Wednesday evening and ended at 6 am on Friday morning. “Of course, Mani did allow the unit a short break of three hours, but it was hardly a break. Govinda, Nikhil and all the unit members had to start shooting soon,” said our source. Govinda and Nikhil were amazed at Mani’s high energy levels. “Mani, who had just been hospitalised, left his actorscompletely impressed. Also, Govinda kept Nikhil and other unit members in splits with his humourous one-liners thereby keeping stress at bay.”
