At the trailer launch of his production venture Kadaram Kondan, Kamal was all praise for Chiyaan Vikram "I was impressed when cinematographer and director friend of mine screened Meera as not all actors can confidently face the camera and act, Vikram is one such actor".
"I wish Vikram should have become Chiyaan much earlier. Had Sethu happened to him long back, he would have done more quality films. Just like how Chiyaan stayed with him all these years, the title KK will also travel with him from now", added Kamal Haasan.
"I enjoyed watching Kadaram Kondan not as an actor but as a fan and artist. The film has come out well just like a Hollywood action thriller. Not all actors would allow supporting actors to enjoy equal scope. A confident actor like Sivaji Ganesan did in Thiruvilayadal by allowing Nagesh to perform. Small characters in my films scored well. In Kadaram Kondan, Vikram allowed actors like Abi and Akshara to have equal footage. Vikram has the panache and style which is important for KK the character which he plays in the film", said Kamal.
"Raaj Kamal Films will function without me and that’s how we structured the production house", he added. Kamal also praised the entire cast and crew including director Rajesh, music composer Ghibran for upping the ante. The actor requested the fans of Vikram to support his quality films so that there will not be any confusion for him in selecting the scripts and henceforth taking Tamil cinema to the next level.
Kamal also announced that Kadaram Kondan will hit the screens on July 19.
