Nithya Menen in Mani Ratnam Film

Actress Nithya Menen is busy shooting for Jenuse Mohamed's 100 Days of Love with Dulquer Salmaan in Bangalore. Meanwhile, sources say that the pretty actress' next is a Mani Ratnam film! Rumours are also rife that Dulquer Salmaan, with whom Nithya acted in Ustad Hotel, has been cast as the hero of the film. 
 
Interestingly, Ahaana Krishna, who made her M-Town debut with Njan Steve Lopez, was also approached for the project to play the second lead, but Ahaana did not take it up. "Ahaana had met the film's crew for a briefing of her character. While the project and the people involved sounded exciting, she has not signed the film as she is extremely cautious about the roles she takes up. As of now, Ahaana is also busy with her studies in Chennai," says a source close to the actress. Ahaana's debut film was directed by Rajeev Ravi and she was cast opposite Farhaan Faasil in it.
 
While there were rumours about Nivin Pauly being roped in for the Mani Ratnam project, the actor had clarified recently that he has not received any such offer. Like all Mani Ratnam films, A R Rahman will be the composer for this movie as well.
