Although Kamal Hassan is presently busy shooting for Vishwaroopam 2, his cast and crew who have been involved with him for his long stalled project – Marudhanayagam wait in line to get in touch with him once again.
One such case is DOP Muthukumar, who is on board for Kamal Hassan’sMarudhanayagam – featuring the likes of Ulganayagan himself alongside, Nassar and Sathyaraj. A part of this project which has been in the making since 1997, 16 years hence, Muthukumar recollects incidents which were shot at the Athirapally waterfalls in Kerala.
Remarking that the project will leave everyone spellbound , Muthu says, “There was a scene where Kamal Sir is chased by his enemies and big hounds. After running uphill, sidestepping the slippery surface of the rocks Kamal Sir pushes down a boulder twice his size down the hill !!! I stood there gazing at this man’s conviction.I am sure he will start the project soon once over with his assignments.”
Funded by Rajkamal International, this project is expected to kick start yet again once Kamal Hassan is over with Lingusamy’s project. Marudhanayagam might feature music from AR Rahman, with cinematography from Ravi K Chandran.
