Kamal hails MadhavanPublished: December 18, 2015
Kamal Haasan has come out with a congratulatory message to Madhavan, ahead of the release of the latter’s ‘Irudhi Suttru’. Remember the two had worked together in films such as ‘Anbe Sivam’, ‘Nala Damayanthi’ and ‘Manmadhan Ambu’, and hence, share a good rapport.
“When I first cast Madhavan in a film I had written (‘Anbe Sivam’), his role was secondary to mine. We enjoyed working on the film. When everybody saw the film, they felt that the two roles were equal. That’s why I like Madhavan and that’s why he could’ve mistaken me for mentor,” Kamal said.
Hailing Madhavan as hardworking, Kamal said he deserves all the success he has been getting. “From beefing up his body and thinking about the script, I can see he’s very passionate about the film. I also wondered how he’s going to play ‘khadoos’. I think he has to tuck away his smile away somewhere through the film,” he said.
‘Irudhi Suttru’ is a bilingual sport drama film written and directed by Sudha Kongara Prasad. The film features Madhavan in the leading role as a boxing coach, and is being simultaneously made in Tamil and Hindi, under the title ‘Saala Khadoos’.
