Now, it looks like the project which went on floors 18 years ago, has found its investors. According to the latest buzz, Lyca Productions, which is currently funding Rajinikanth's Enthiran 2, will join hands with Ayngaran International in order to produce Marudhanayagam.
Though there is no official confirmation regarding this development, Ayngaran International, on its social media page had recently posted a poster of Marudhanayagam, indicating that the latest speculation might soon turn out to be true.
Marudhanayagam, a 100 Crore rupees project back then in 1997, would now cost at least 400 Crore rupees if revived, which would subsequently make it India's costliest film.
Portraying Kamal Haasan as the 18th Century warrior named Muhammed Yusuf Khan, Marudhanayagam was initially planned to be made in several languages including English, Tamil, Telugu, Hindi and French.
Will Kamal Haasan's magnum opus ever be revived? Stay tuned to know more about the project.
