TV anchor-turned-actor Ma Ka Pa Anand’s next movie has been titled Maanik. The movie is said to deal with a fantasy subject and will see Suza Kumar playing the female lead.
Maanik will be helmed by Martin, who was one of the top finalists in season five of the reality show, Naalaya Iyakkunar. Speaking to DC about the movie, the director said: “Two friends (played by Ma Ka Pa and Vasan) who grow up at an ashram leave the place to achieve something in a particular field. The problems they face during their journey form the crux. It is a comedy film with fantasy elements incorporated,” he said.
The title of the movie – Maanik – would strike a chord with any Rajini fan as it has the name of the Superstar’s character in Baasha. When asked about it, Martin quipped: “The name is easy and has a nice ring to it. Also, it is catchy and hence the reach will be wide.”
Music has been composed by Dharan Kumar and Madhumitha. Manobala and Aruldas will be seen in pivotal roles in the movie.
