Kamal Haasan, the Ulaganayagan, recently had an chat with the talented actor Vijay Sethupathi through social media. Interestingly, the online interaction of the actors was titled as 'Thalaivan Irukkindran'. To the uninitiated, Thalaivan Irukkindran is the title of Kamal Haasan's upcoming project, which is supposed to be bankrolled by Lyca Productions.
However, the latest reports suggest that Vijay Sethupathi might replace Kamal Haasan as the leading man of Thalaivan Irukkindran. Netizens are considering the senior actor's decision to give the same name to his interaction with Sethupathi, as a hint to the same. However, there is no official confirmation on the same as of now.
Thalaivan Irukkindran, which was expected to mark Kamal Haasan's second collaboration with Lyca Production, was supposed to be directed by the actor himself. Even if the actor has decided to not play the lead role in the project, he might continue as the director. If it happens, this will the first Kamal Haasan directorial to feature another successful actor as the leading man.
In that case, Kamal Haasan might make a few changes in the script of Thalaivan Irukkindran, as it is originally written for the actor himself. Vadivelu, the senior comedian is said to be playing a pivotal role in the prestigious project. AR Rahman, the veteran musician, has been roped in to compose the songs and background score for the project.
However, the future of Thalaivan Irukkindran totally depends on how Kamal Haasan's relationship with the production banner, Lyca Productions evolves in the future. Recently, it was reported that the banner is planning to cancel the 2-film deal they made with Kamal Haasan, owing to creative differences.
