Director Ahmed has made three films till now: First, Vaamanan starring Jai and Priya Anand, second Endrendrum Punnagai with Jiiva and Trisha. The third movie was Manithan, the Tamil remake of the Akshay Kumar film Jolly LLB, which featured Udhayanidhi Stalin & Hansika. And now, for his fourth venture, he would be calling the shots with Jayam Ravi. A few months ago, Ravi had signed a three-film deal with Screen Scene Media Entertainment, who have funded films like Sandakozhi 2, Thadam and Neeya. Ravi had shared the news on his social media. Jayam Ravi's this project with director Ahmed will be one of the three films, as part of the deal with the same production house.
We now have an important breaking update on this project. Our sources close to the production team revealed the title of this venture. They were quoted as, “The title of the project directed by Ahmed featuring Jayam Ravi is Jana Gana Mana, which are the opening words of our national anthem.

Details about the other cast members and technical team will be announced soon!” One is not sure if the national anthem's lines are allowed to be used for a film's title, but it seems apt for the premise of this flick.

After an uproar, the team removed the scene. Kajal Aggarwal is teaming up with Ravi for the first time and Hip Hop Thamizha is scoring the music.Read More
