Kamal revives film with RajiniBefore starting with his ambitious bilingual Amar Hai, Kamal Hassan is planning to revive his most ambitious project, Marudhanayagam. the period film which revolves around the life of the 18th century warrior Mohammed Yusuf Khan, will have a budget of around Rs 150 crore and will release in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and English.
The film kick started in 1997 but due to various reasons was shelved after a few days of shooting. When contacted, Kamal Hassan said, "We shot about 25 percent of the film before it was called off for many reasons including the finances. But now we're looking at reviving the film. It will take some time but the time lapse doesn't matter.
Coincidentally, we stopped shooting exactly where ten years are supposed to pass by in the protagonist's life."
Interestingly, Hassan has a role for his friend and arch rival Rajinikanth in his film.
He said, "Yes there is a role that is ideal for him. We've done ten films together in the beginning of our careers, but none recently. No one has come up with a project worthy of us. It's up to me to bell the cat."
