In his next film expected to be a rib-tickler, Tamil star Kamal Haasan will reprise the role of the humorous ‘Balram Naidu’ he played in his 2008 hit Dasavatharam, while sharing the screeen with his daughter Shruti for the first time.
‘Sabash Naidu’ (Well Done, Naidu) will see Haasan joining hands with well-known Malayalam filmmaker T K Rajeev Kumar after a period of over two decades, when the duo gave the critically acclaimed ‘Chanakyan,’ a revenge saga.
It is a trilingual film to be made in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi and went to the floors today at a function here.
The first look of the movie showed Haasan precariously perched on a bike with top Telugu comedian Brahmanandam on the pillon.
In the three versions in Tamil, Hindi and Telugu, the movie will have popular actors like Saurabh Shukla, Ramya Krishna, Farida Jalal and Brahmanandam, a press release here said.
Ace musiciam Ilayaraja will score the tunes while Haasan will handle the story and script. Shukla will pen the dialogues for the Hindi version, titled ‘Sabash Kundu.’
The film will be extensively shot in the US.
Kamal Haasan’s last film, ‘Thoongavanam’, saw lukewarm response among the audience.
