    The makers of Kamal Haasan-starrer Sabhash Naidu, which will simultaneously be made in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi have gone on the floors in Los Angeles, USA.

    "First day's shooting going smoothly for the two Naidus and one Kundu. Great dancers, great crew," Kamal Haasan wrote on his official Twitter page on Tuesday (June 7th).

    The film is a spinoff on the popular character Balram Naidu from Haasan's 2010 Tamil film Dasavatharam, which was helmed by KS Ravikumar.

    In Sabhash Naidu, which also features Shruti Haasan, Ramya Krishnan, Manu Narayan and Brahmanandam in important roles, Haasan will return as RAW (Research and Analysis Wing) operative, Balram Naidu.

    While Shruti will play Kamal's reel daughter, Ramya Krishnan will be seen as his wife.

    Popular star comedian Brahmanandam will play Haasan's sidekick in the film, which will be directed by well-known Malayalam film-maker TK Rajeev Kumar.

    Sabhash Naidu is being produced by Raaj Kamal International in association with Lyca Productions.

    Meanwhile, an organization has filed a complaint against the Thoongaa Vanam actor at the collector's office in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu.

    The association has claimed that the title 'Sabhash Naidu' aims at glorifying a particular caste and that the shooting of the film should be banned with immediate effect.

    Elangovan, the President of the organization has requested the Tamil Nadu government to stall the release of the film, should it be completed without undergoing a title change.

    He has also urged the government to make sure that no posters or banners of the film are hoisted in the state.

    He has threatened to initiate massive protests in Chennai and Coimbatore if the government decides to stay mum on the issue.

    "The movie is titled 'Sabash Naidu' and by using that they are trying to portray Naidu community as a higher caste. Why they are highlighting only one community, does it mean that all the other communities are lower than them?" He has asked according to a report from The News Minute.
