Kamal Haasan, the Ulaganayakan of the Tamil film industry recently had a live interaction with the talented actor Vijay Sethupathi, on social media. The duo's live chat was an absolute treat for their respective fans and cine-goers, who are hoping to watch them together on screen soon. During the interaction, Kamal Haasan finally opened up about Marudhanayagam, his dream project.
The senior actor was asked about Marudhanayagam during the live chat, and he finally revealed the current status of the project. According to Kamal Haasan, it is a project that demands a massive budget, and all he needs to revive Marudhanayagam is money. Haasan stated that he will definitely revive the project if he gets enough funds.
Interestingly, the senior actor also added that the script of the film needs to be changed if he has to act in it now. It is because the script is written with a 40-year-old man in mind, and he is already in his early 60s. If it doesn't work out, he will have to find another actor who fits into the role.
Marudhanayagam, which was the dream project of Kamal Haasan was officially launched in 1997. The movie, which was said to be a period film, revolves around the life of Mohammed Yusuf Khan, a warrior who lived in the 18th century. Even though the film started rolling in the same year and the team shot for a few days, it was dropped eventually due to the financial crisis.
The rumours which suggest that Kamal Haasan is all set to revive Marudhanayagam started doing rounds, after a poster of the project was displayed along with Sundar C's Sangamithra, at the Cannes Film Festival of 2017.
Kamal Haasan is currently going through a tough time in his career, after his ambitious project Indian 2 has been put on hold post the crane accident on the sets. The actor is expected to be seen next in Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu 2, which marks his second collaboration with filmmaker Gautham Menon.
