Nikhil Murugan, Kamal Hassan's PRO, has confirmed to Oneindia that the reports are baseless. “It's not true. Kamal sir is not joining hands with Salman Khan.” There were buzz that Salman Khan was approached by producer Aascar Ravichandran to star in a multilingual movie, which would be made with the budget of mammoth Rs. 300 crore.
However, Ulaga Nayagan's upcoming project is likely to direct by Chakri Toleti, who had earlier worked with Kamal Hassan in Unnaipol Oruvan.
