This piece of news had us shrieking in delight! We spotted posters of Kamal Haasan’s Marudhanayagam at the Cannes Market! This film, this grand project of Kamal’s could actually get made. WOW!
The last time the film was mentioned was in Venkat Prabhu’s Saroja, where Premji stumbles upon a stash of ‘thirittu’ Marudhanayagam DVDs. And for a moment there, every one in the theatre wished it existed. That’s how much we want to see Kamal as the 18th century warrior, Mohammad Yusuf Khan.
Now that it’s made a splash in Cannes, we’re clinging to this glimmer of hope and keeping our fingers crossed that this film sees the light of day real soon.
