Actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan and comedian Brahmanandam will join hands for the first time for an action sequence in the first schedule of upcoming trilingual action-comedy Sabaash Naidu.
In the film, which will feature Haasan as a RAW operative, Brahmanandam will be seen as his sidekick.
"In the first schedule which will start later this week in the US, Haasan and Brahmanandam will shoot for a chase sequence. The team will spend the first few days rehearsing for the scene and will eventually shoot the scene without body doubles," a source from the film's unit told IANS.
Directed by TK Rajeev Kumar, the film also stars Shruti Haasan, Ramya Krishnan and Manu Narayan in important roles. The Puli actress will play Haasan's reel daughter for the first time.
In the film's Hindi version, titled Sabaash Kundu, Saurabh Shukla will replace Brahmanandam.
Nearly 80 percent of the film will be shot in the USA. Produced by Haasan's Raaj Kamal International, the film will hit the screens worldwide on December 1st.
Maestro Ilaiyaraaja has already started working on the tunes. Kamal Haasan had recently wrote about working with the musical genius, on his official social media page.
"Working with Raja fun as ever. Ready to trod the untrodden. Looking forward to that date. When TN meets LA District 78 of LA," the Manmadan Ambu star had said.
Meanwhile, Ravikumar, the General Secretary of an organization called 'Viduthalai Siruthai Katchi' has requested Kamal Haasan to change the title of the film.
According to a report, Ravikumar has said, "The caste-based violence is all-time high and honour killing is also on an alarming rise in Tamil Nadu now. So, film titles signifying caste or community will only aggravate the present situation. And the ill-effects of some of the titles used by Kamal sir still continue in few villages. Let him not play around once again by using a title which involves a particular community."
