Back in 1997, Kamal Haasan did the unthinkable with his ambitious film Marudhunayagam. He launched the film with Queen Elizabeth, Sivaji Ganesan, and Rajinikanth as the chief guests. The film was budgeted at Rs 100 crore two decades ago.
According to the recent reports, Kamal Haasan has plans to revive Marudhunayagam. However, he said that he wouldn’t be headlining the cast but will continue the film with a different hero. Now, we have news about the hero replacing Kamal Haasan.
Rumors are rife that Vikram is approached to play the lead role in Marudhunayagam. Reportedly, the talks began when Chiyaan did Kadaram Kondan, which is produced by Kamal Haasan under his banner Raaj Kamal International.
However, it looks like nothing has been finales as of now. Kamal Haasan shot for the film for about 20 days and had to drop the film due to budget constraints. Let us wait and see if Kamal Haasan convinces Vikram to do Marudhunayagam.
