According to media reports, Ulaganayakan Kamal Haasan will be doing the film with award winning filmmaker Shaji N Karun’s new film titled Gaadha. The film is based on prominent writer T Padmanabhan’s short story titled ‘Kadal’.
The project was conceived with Mohanlal in the lead, but it had to be postponed as the superstar allegedly opted out of it.
Shaji N Karun is one of the finest directors in Malayalam, having directed such well-appreciated movies like Piravi, Vanaprastham and Kutty Sranku.
Vaanaprastham, in which Shaji had directed, Mohanlal won the National Award for the best Actor.
