CHENNAI: "Mirziya" actress Saiyami Kher, who was last seen in Telugu film "Reya, has reportedly bagged a role in ace filmmaker Mani Ratnam's next yet-untitled Tamil-Telugu bilingual, which features Karthi and Nani in the lead.

"Saiyami is not playing the second lead, but she has been roped in for a brief role. Nothing more is known about her role as of now," a source from the film's unit told IANS.

Ratnam's project, which features Nithya Menon as the female lead, has gone through lot of changes in the last couple of months.

The project was initially planned as a Tamil revenge drama and was slated to go on the floors this December.

Last month Ratnam decided to make it as a bilingual and pushed the film to next year, forcing actor Dulquer Salmaan, who was earlier roped in to play the lead, to walk out of the project.

Telugu actor Nani replaced Dulquer.

The latest update is that actress Keerthy Suresh has quit the project too.

"Keerthy was to play one of the female leads. She met Ratnam last week and conveyed her decision to exit the project and he respected it," the source said.

The film will have music by A.R Rahman and Ravi Varman will crank the camera.
