Ravan has been in news for a long time now, both for good and bad reasons. The shooting was delayed due to numerous problems that cropped up while the film was still in its early production stages – the director suffering from a heart attack, elephant mishap that killed the trainer on the sets were some of them.
But now though, as the filming is complete, the makers have tentatively announced a release date.
Ravan starring Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai, Govinda, Manisha Koirala, Nikhil Dwivedi, Ravi Kissen and others, will release on June 18th 2010, less than a month after Kites.
The film has been written by Rensil D’Silva (Kurbaan) and directed by Mani Ratnam. The music has been composed by A R Rahman.
Very important release for Abhishek Bachchan, this. He has always done well in Mani Ratnam directed films, Ravan should be no exception.
