Kamal Haasan, the super-talented actor of Indian Cinema, will replace Mohanlal as the protagonist of Gadha, the upcoming movie directed by Shaji N Karun. The movie is being planned as a tri-lingual in Malayalam, Tamil and Telugu.
Recently, Mohanlal backed out from Gadha, and the reasons are undisclosed. The project was almost shelved and Shaji N Karun was planning to move on with another movie. It was rumoured that Mohanlal backed out due to financial issues.
The production banner failed to pay the usual remuneration of Mohanlal and tried for a negotiation. But the actor was not willing to compromise on his salary. Later, director Shaji stated that there was a problem with the casting.
Recently, Kamal Haasan came across the script and was highly impressed with the same. Reportedly, Kamal immediately expressed his desire to work in the movie and even roped in a much bigger production banner to produce the film.
So, Gadha is very much back on the track and will start rolling within a few months. The movie, which is said to be based on the backdrops of dance and theatre art, is based on a short story written by T Padmanabhan.
