Mysskin - Back to the roots

Last Updated: Tue, Feb 23, 2010 04:49 hrs

We had reported some time back that Mysskin is writing a script for making a film with Cheran as hero. Last week he completed the script staying in a small wayside hotel near Chengalpet.

Mysskin’s Nandalala made on a budget of Rs 3.5 Crore is yet to see the light of the day, as its producers after a series of failures has got cold feet.

The noted director’s new film Yutham Sei, he wanted Rs 7 Crore from a Mumbai corporate is now being made by leading producer Kalpathi Agoram for Rs 4 Crore! Mysskin had to slash his budget as now there are no producers willing to make films with him for more than Rs 5 Crore (including cost of marketing).

Remember a few months back Mysskin was dreaming of making an epic period drama on “Buddha’s tooth legend” on a budget of Rs 100 Crore with ‘Ulaganayagan’ Kamal Hassan, which never took off!

Please note directors of repute like Mysskin, Sasikumar, Samuthirakani, Sasi, Jahanathan and others who make different type of films, should become more budget conscious, if they have to make films in Tamil.
