Actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan will revive the popular character Balram Naidu, a RAW operative from 2008 Tamil action-comedy “Dasavatharam”, in his upcoming yet-untitled trilingual comedy. It is slated to go on the floors in May.

“Kamal will play Balram Naidu in his new film. Audiences will be introduced to his family for the first time. It’s an out-and-out comedy flick interspersed with sporadic action sequences. The regular shooting will start from the second week of May,” a source told IANS.

Actress Ramya Krishnan will play Kamal’s wife in the film, which will also star Shruti Haasan as their daughter.

This will be the first time Kamal and Shruti will be playing father-daughter on the screen.

Veteran Telugu comedian Brahmanandam will play the character Appa Rao, Kamal’s sidekick, which was played by late choreographer Raghuram in “Dasavatharam”.

“Most of the film will be shot in the US. The makers have hired international make-up crew to take care of Kamal’s look in the film,” the source added.

The film, which is being produced by Raaj Kamal International, will be simultaneously shot in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi.

National Award-winning actor Saurabh Shukla is also part of the cast.

Maestro Ilayaraja, who has been roped in to compose the tunes, chose the title for the film’s Tamil version which will be officially unveiled on Friday(April 29).

    My dear Kamal, since this is an out and out comedy entertainer, plz put Crazy Mohan for writing dialogues. Or else, it will turn out as DUD/DISASTER like Mumbai Xpress, Manmadhan Ambu and Uthama Villain.

      This Kamal Haasan is one lemur who thinks he is an actor. Pity those who feed on this pretender's antics. Even his ilk from Madagascar are sure to find him obnoxious. And the worst part is that he thinks that there is no actor like him. God, when will he know what mercy is ?
