JUST IN: Udhayanidhi Stalin Reveals Details About Kamal Haasan’s KH234!

Hot Updates!

On November 6th, Kamal Haasan and Mani Ratnam took the Cinema world by surprise after they announced their collaboration together for the former 234th film. This collaboration comes after 35 years. Previously, the two stalwarts worked together on Nayakan, one of the biggest hits of Kamal as well as Mani Ratnam. Kamal Haasan shared this news ahead of his 68th Birthday which he celebrated recently. AR Rahman will be composing the music for the film. Kamal Haasan and Mani Ratnam’s film will be backed by the Madras Talkies, Red Giant Movies and Udhayanidhi Stalin. The poster also revealed that the movie is produced by Kamal Haasan, Mani Ratnam, R Mahendran and Siva Ananth.

Sharing the news on Twitter, the Nayakan actor wrote, “Here we go again! #KH234.” Udhayanidhi Stalin, one of the producers of the film, has now revealed more details about the film. He reportedly revealed that the work for the film will only begin next year. He said that the project will go on floors in August or September 2023. He also reportedly stated that the story is yet to be fixed and only the plot with three lines has been set.

The actor and director previously worked together in Nayakan back in 1987. The movie was backed by Muktha Srinivasan, and it introduced Saranya Ponvanan as a debut lead. Nayakan is loosely based on the life of the Bombay underworld don Varadarajan Mudaliar and the American film The Godfather (1972). Ratnam was initially approached to remake the Hindi film Pagla Kahin Ka (1970) for Srinivasan and Kamal Haasan but refused. He instead suggested two other stories, one of which impressed kamal and became Nayakan. The cinematography was handled by P. C. Sreeram and edited by B. Lenin and V. T. Vijayan. Music was composed by Ilaiyaraaja and ‘Thenpaandi Cheemaiyile’ became an iconic song. Filming began in late 1986, taking place primarily in Madras and to a lesser extent, Bombay.
