"Talks are going on with Manisha to play Kamal's wife in the movie. It's a small role. But nothing has been finalised yet," a source told IANS.

Manisha and Kamal have previously worked in S. Shankar-directed 'Indian'.

The film, tentatively titled 'Thoonga Vanam', features Trisha Krishnan in the lead role. Actor Prakash Raj will be essaying an important character.

Kamal Haasan's long-time associate Rajesh will helm the project, which is said to be a thriller that'll unfold in a single night.

The film was earlier planned to be completely shot in Mauritius, but due to some logistical issues, the team will now shoot in India.
