Can one ever forget the gut-wrenching scenes at Marina beach after the devastating tsunami, the fury of Mother Nature unleashed upon the hapless humans? Kamal Hassan wants to recreate those scenes once again for his forthcoming mega venture Dasavatharam.
Super actor Kamal Hassan is featuring in 10 different roles for the first time in the history of Indian cinema in his movie Dasavatharam. The movie's budget is skyrocketing with each passing day, the cost of its production is also nearing that of the much hyped superstar Rajinikanth's Shivaji. The producer of the film V.Ravichandiran has already said in a press release that he has spent Rs.30 crores on the movie so far, and it will require nearly 12 crores more to complete the film.
Kamal and his close friend, director K.S.Ravikumar are keen to bring out the film with an aura of grandeur. Everyday, the director and actor wake up with some novel idea, and the same gets included in the script for the betterment of the movie. Recreating the tsunami days was one such idea, and the producer immediately gave his positive nod to what will surely be a costly venture.
Director K.S. Ravikumar and his art director Thottatharani are now busy with the creation of the tsunami set at Royapuram fishing colony. An artificial beach and fishermen's huts are being created by the artists of the Thottatharani team.
Initially the producer had decided to release the movie on August 15th. Now it seems the release date has been postponed to the Deepavali day.
