This comes as one big pleasant surprise to Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan's fans! Kamal Haasan has told a Mumbai tabloid that he will be reviving work on his pet project, 'Marudhanayagam', that went on floors more than a decade back!
After finishing work on 'Viswaroopam', Kamal Haasan will begin work on 'Marudhanayagam', a period drama on the life of warrior Mohammed Yusuf Khan (aka Marudhanayagam) which will release in Tamil, Hindi, Telugu and English! Marudhanayagam is an 18th century warrior. Post 'Marudhanayagam', Kamal will work on his bilingual 'Amar Hai'.
This film will boast off a huge budget of Rs 150 crore and Kamal while speaking to the daily expressed, "We shot 25% of the film when we went on floors in 1997, we couldn't continue due to budget and several other constrains. We are now keen on reviving the film and this time lapse doesn't matter for we stopped shooting where ten years are supposed to pass by in the life of our hero, what a coincidence!"
Not just that, the film will have Superstar Rajinikanth in a cameo! "We have a role that's ideal for him; we did ten films in the early stage of our careers. None came up with a project worthy enough for us to unite, it’s time for me to bell the cat", says Kamal.
The film was launched by Queen Elizabeth II in 1997 and has been long pending in the production stage. It now looks like Indian film patrons are in for a visual extravaganza for Kamal, who is known for his daring and novice attempts, is all set to present us with his pet project... And what can excite film patrons more than the coming together of Rajini - Kamal?
