Mani Ratnam, one of the most respected directors in Indian cinema, has always had a penchant for multistarrers. This is an observation that has only consolidated with his latest film Chekka Chivantha Vaanam.
Some of his biggest hits have been multistarrers. He even tried to bring together the two juggernauts - Vijay and Mahesh Babu for a historical film.

Here is a list of multistarrers directed by Mani Ratnam:
Lead actors: Gautham Karthik, Arjun, Arvind Swami, Thulasi Nair, Lakshmi Manchu
