Kamal to be directed by Lingusamy - Shankar?

Posted: 23 Dec 2011 10:11 AM PST

The Kollywood industry is abuzz with a rumor that director Lingusamy and director Shankar are silently planning to make a movie together. We hear the directors are keen to cast Kamal Haasan as their hero in this venture.

The project is touted to be in its initial stages. Lingusamy and Shankar had come together recently for the former's film 'Vettai's music release event. It is reported that Shankar has written a script. Director Lingusamy who came across this script seems to have liked it, according to reports, and has also got the green signal to direct the same.

Now both the directors' unanimous choice happens to be to book Kamal Haasan for the lead role, but the Ulaganayagan is busy with his upcoming magnum opus 'Viswaroopam.' Once this film is wrapped up the actor will set some time aside to hear the directors' out before deciding on his availability for this project, sources reveal.

Now if this materializes, the movie buffs of Tamil Nadu will get to experience one brilliant film, what with Lingusamy's fast-paced story telling, Shankar's elegance and as the icing on the cake Kamal's classic act! We will get back with more on this soon...
