Gopala Ratnam Subramaniam known as Mani Ratnam is an Indian film director, screenwriter, and producer who predominantly works in Tamil cinema.

Mani Ratnam was born on 2 June 1956 in Madurai, Tamil Nadu as the second child of a family that was closely associated with film production.

His father S. Gopala Ratnam was a film distributor who worked for Venus Pictures, and his uncle “Venus” Krishnamurthy was a film producer.

His elder brother G. Venkateswaran would go on to produce some of Mani’s films.

His younger brother is G. Srinivasan, who like Venkateswaran would also co-produce some of his films.

Mani Ratnam grew up in Madras (now Chennai), along with his siblings and cousins. Despite being a film family, the children were not allowed to watch films as the elders considered them taboo.

“As a youngster, films seemed like a waste of time”, he claimed in a 1994 interview; however, he started watching films more actively when he was studying in the Besant Theosophical School.

During this time, he developed an admiration towards actors like Sivaji Ganesan and Nagesh; watching all their films.

When he discovered the legendary director K. Balachander, he became his fan.

Upon completing his schooling, he graduated with a degree in commerce from the Ramakrishna Mission Vivekananda College, affiliated to the Madras University.

Later, he did his Master of Business Administration (MBA) in finance from Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies, Bombay.

After finishing his post-graduation in 1977, he was employed in a firm in Madras as a management consultant, and continued to work there for sometime.

Ratnam married actress Suhasini on 26 August 1988.

The couple have a son, Nandan, who was born in 1992.

The family resides in Alwarpet, Chennai, where he runs his production company, Madras Talkies.
