Veteran actor-turned-producer Delhi Ganesh has expressed happiness over Kamal Haasan's support for his upcoming maiden production venture Ennul Aayiram, which has his son Maha making his acting debut.
"Kamal sir and I have worked together in several films and our relationship has always been very cordial. I've never told him anything until he has asked me. Likewise, when I was planning to launch my son, he got to know about it while we were working on 'Papanasam'," Ganesh told IANS.
"A common friend had told him that I was planning to launch my son, and Kamal sir said he already knew about it. I requested him to unveil the audio of the film and he immediately agreed," Ganesh recalled.
"We had originally planned to have the audio launch in an auditorium, but Kamal sir suggested that we do it in his house, with a banner of the film in the background, because he didn't want me to waste an extra penny more," he said.
Talking about how the legendary actor's support boosted the confidence of the entire team, he said, "He patiently heard all the songs and later watched the trailer, appreciated the director and wished my son. He need not have to do all that, but he did it because of the mutual respect we have for each other. The support he showed really boosted our confidence."
Delhi Ganesh and Kamal Haasan have worked in many films together. Nayagan, Michael Madana Kama Rajan and Apoorva Sagodharargal are some of Haasan's superhit movies that have Delhi Ganesh exhibiting his acting prowess.
