Mani Ratnam's film could clash with Nag-Nani's Devadasu

Mani Ratnam and Lyca Productions have today announced the release date of their multi-starrer.  Titled 'Chekka Chivantha Vaanam' in Tamil and 'Nawab' in Telugu, it will hit the cinemas on September 28.  

There is no clarification regarding the release date of the Telugu version.  But since Mani's films release simultaneously in both Telugu and Tamil, 'Nawab' too could come on the same date, a day after 'DevaDas', the Nagarjuna-Nani comedy.  

Vijay Sethupathi will be seen as a cop in this film.  Simbu will be seen as a muscular engineer, while Arvind Swamy is a politician.  Music is by AR Rahman.  Aditi Rao Hydari, Arun Vijay, Prakash Raj, Thyagarajan and others also feature in it.  

Written by Mani and Siva Ananth, its cinematography and editing are by Santosh Sivan and Sreekar Prasad, respectively.
