As Kamal Haasan completes 61 years in the industry, director Lokesh Kanagaraj released a tribute video. The tribute is the recreation of “Potta Padiyudhu” song from Kamal starrer Sathya.

“I take immense joy and pride in wishing @ikamalhaasan sir on 61years of kamalism. Im honoured to release the ‘REBEL ANTHEM’ a location-based cover of the 1987 classic song ‘POTTA PADIYUDHU’ from SATHYA created by ‘SIMBA’ director Arvind Sridhar as a tribute. Kudos @simba_arvind,” tweeted Lokesh, while sharing the video.

Arvind Sridhar and his gang have shot the video in the same locations where the original song was shot over 20 years ago.

Kamal Haasan expressed his gratitude to Lokesh and Arvind for their effort. “@simba_arvind @Dir_lokesh I am touched. This does not seem like simple nostalgia. This is unconditional love. The return gift from my side could & should only be of the same kind. Love you guys. My motivation, in a marathon you all have allowed me to run,” tweeted the Vishwaroopam star.

Sathya, which was the directorial debut of Suresh Krissna, released in 1987. In the film, Kamal played an ‘angry young man’ who falls into the trap of a cunning politician. The movie enjoys a cult status among the Tamil audience.
