Kamal Haasan, fresh from the success of his ‘Dasavatharam’, has already started working for his next project ‘Marmayogi’. Initial reports suggested the film, said to be Kamal Haasan’s answer to Hollywood movies like ‘Gladiator’ and ‘Braveheart’ in terms of sheer grandeur, is estimated to cost around Rs.100-crore. Now, it’s official that the budget has been finalised at Rs.150-crore.
The latest camera called ‘Red Eye’ camera would be used for shooting. Since the camera’s daily rent is around Rs.30,000, the producer is planning to purchase a brand new one. The film is set against the backdrop of seventh century B.C., for which Kamal is planning to use up the video footage he had shot for his shelved project ‘Maruthanayagam’.
The latest news is that Hemamalini, Bollywood’s ‘dreamgirl’ of yesteryears and who played a brief role in Kamal’s ‘Hey Ram’, has been roped in to play a negative role. In her illustrious career, this will be the first film where she will be playing a role with gray shades.
