Fans of both superstar Rajinikanth and Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan have been waiting to see the two superstars to re-unite on screen but the actor-filmmaker says their coming together for a film would be a costly affair. They have done a few films together in the early stages of their career, notably Apoorva Raagangal, which was the breakthrough film for Hassan and the debut film of Rajini.

When asked about him teaming up with Rajinikanth again, Haasan said, "Working with Rajinikanth is a costly question. If both of us starred together, there would be no money to make the film! If we have a lot of money, maybe then we can star in a film together." Remakes and sequels are the order of the day, but ask him about revisiting his old Hindi hits like Sadma and Ek Duje Ke Liye, Hassan says he won't fit into those films anymore.

"There are talks about making a part two of Sadma, where the female protagonist remembers him and comes back, but I don't think I would fit into the hero's role any more. Moreover, a tragedy is best left at that, it is a tragedy because she doesn't return," said the multifaceted actor. Continue reading on the slide...

The 58-year-old actor is currently gearing up for the release of his new big-budgeted thriller Vishwaroopam, to release on January 11. Hassan has written, directed and acted in the film, which also stars Pooja Kumar, Rahul Bose, Andrea Jeremiah and Jaideep Ahlawat.

"It is a fast-paced thriller with an international subject. It is very different from all the films that are being made in the genre of terrorism and spy thrillers. The way we have made the film is different," said Hassan.

The film was shot simultaneously in Tamil and Hindi and also stars filmmaker Shekhar Kapur in a special role.

"Shekhar and I have been discussing about making a film together. When I asked him to be a part of Vishwaroopam, he went about with the enthusiasm of an amateur and worked on this film," Hassan said at an event.
