He began his career with me as a cinematographer and editor. We seem to understand each other and I have completed a script for me. We are tweaking it a bit and plan to hit the floors by July end, early August,” says Kamal.
The actor, who has done several comedies in his 6 decade long illustrious career, but took a backseat from the genre last decade. He is however looking forward to doing an out and out comedy soon. “I have not done a comedy in the national arena, but the number of comedy films in Tamil is more than anyone else. We have to do subjects which would be intriguing. I want to do a comedy film even now, but as they say, comedy is a serious business. So, you have to be careful of how you do it,” he shares.
So does he plan to revisit Sabash Naidu any time soon? “Yes, we are trying to revisit that. The IPR is with me,” he signs off. Watch the full video interview with Kamal Haasan below here. The actor spoke of Vikram, the sequel to it, Indian 2 with Shankar and a lot more.
