Kamalhaasan's next after Munnabhai in tamil will be his own script&production in Tamil/Hindi with Singeetham Srinivasa Rao directing it.Kamal says the film has been delayed because the bollywood actress they have finalized has some domestic problems to settle before commencing shooting.According to the 'Times of India-Bangalore times'the actress in question is said to be Madhuri Dixit.If true it is a combination worth looking forward to.

who cares man.....go and see Peralagan & Arul. Surya rocksin Peralagan and Arul is a mass entertatiner. Vikram & Surya (and to some extent Vijay & Madhavan) are the happening stars. Rajani should retire. Vijayakanth & Kamal should take it easy...get re-focussed and reninvent themselves to only do the roles that suits their skils & age. I guess Sarath & Satyaraj, to some extent, have already started doing that.

Madhuri in Kamal Haasan's bilingual?
By Subhash K Jha
Kamal Haasan is geared up to do an epic Hindi film with Madhuri Dixit.
Tentatively titled Kumar Sambhavam, the bilingual Hindi-Tamil venture will be directed by Sangeetham Srinivasa Rao (Pushpak).
“Madhuri and I have never worked together before. My film requires a woman of substance who would look convincing as a wife and mother. There was really no second choice for the role,” says Haasan.
The negotiations are in the final stages. Bharat Shah, who’s financing the Hindi-Tamil project for producer Haasan, has taken upon himself to get Madhuri (who earlier worked in his financial undertaking Devdas) to sign on the dotted line.
The film requires another leading man too. “I already have someone from Mumbai in mind for that role. But I’ll reveal his name only after Mrs Nene is finalised,” says Haasan.
In the meanwhile, as the Southern press is going berserk over the Kamal Haasan-Rajnikanth war, there’s a twist in the ticklish tale.
Hours after the Rajnikanth camp announced Jaggubhai MBBS, apparently as a retort to Kamal Haasan’s Munnabhai MBBS, there’s a sudden reversal in the situation. Rajnikanth’s camp has changed the title of its film to Shanta Jaggubai. Rajnikanth, originally a Maharashtrian, says he’s now making the film as tribute to his mother.
Says Haasan, “Whatever the title and whatever he’s making, I wish Rajnikanth all the best.”
The title of the Tamil Munnabhai MBBS has been changed to Vasool Raja MBBS — since there’re no extortionists, only money collectors in Chennai. However, we think that Vasool Raja MBA might be a cleverer title. What say?

Enjoyed your sense of humour...;-)
What has happened to Kamal & Rajini? They seem to be thoroughly confused with the onslaught from Vikram & Surya...and to a lesser extent by Vijay (and Madhavan?!). Early days for Dhanush and the rest of the younger brigade...but they too look promising.
Their state of confusion and lack of direction/strategy is clearly evident form their recent announcements. Look at the names....(Shantha) Jaggubhai & Vasool Raja MBBS. One hurriedly made the announcement just get some attention when the Arul, Peralagan, Gilli & AE fever was gripping tamil cinema.....the other is remaking a hindi comedy flick...going down the same old path of his recent cheap comedy flicks where he will deliver comedy with the use of a slang...in most cases...it will be the Madras bhashai. This is not what you expect from two senior (if no longer "leading") stars.
Shankar has chosen Vikram over Kamal for his dream project. Munnabhai MBBS was first offered to Vikram...since he couldn't accomodate the offer...Kamal grabbed the opportunity. Also....his fans and his well wishers are seeking solace in spreading news that he is acting in Bala & Gowtham's movies.....now these guys are from the Vikram & Surya camp. How far this is true and confirmed...nobody knows. And...even then..they have made Kamal wait...Bala is first directing Dhanush/Surya and Gowtham is first directing Surya.
Rajani and Kamal are steadily and suely losing their grip....if they have not already lost it!

Kamal goes bilingual
Saturday, 08 May , 2004, 12:37
Kamalhassan is going to do a bilingual movie. Kamal with his favourite director Singeeetam Srinivas Rao is making Kumara Sambhavam in Hindi and Tamil with Madhuri Dixit as the heroine.
Ms Nene it seems has agreed to do the film as Bharat Shah the leading film financier and money bag is backing the project. Kamal has been quoted in the Mumbai press as saying: “My film requires a woman of substance who would look convincing as a wife and mother. There was really no second choice for the role”.
There would also be a leading young actor from Hindi and Tamil who will do a parallel role in the film, which will be starting immediately after he finishes the Munnabhai remake.

Mr.Kanna seems to be going beserk in his statements.Arul is a badly made movie,Perazhagan is a malayalam remake,Shankar's last movie was a dud,Gilli is a inferior remake of Okkadu(So what if it's a hit).As for Kamal grabbing Munnabhai,the statement is wrong because the day Manohar Prasad of Gemini grabbed the remake rights,he gave a statement which appeared on 'Idlebrain.com'which said that he wants to do thie film in Tamil with Kamal,telugu with Chiranjeevi&Malayalam with Mohanlal.It was Kamal who was reluctant.Until the movies are seen,rash statements should not be made.

You always said you’d never do any role that would made your children cringe.
You’ll have to see Main Hoon Na to know what my role and performance are all about. I’ve explained what I’m playing to my children. To be part of a set-up like Main Hoon Na is important for me as an actor and a star. I’m very clear about one thing: beyond Main Hoon Na negative roles are a no-no for me. This one was first offered to Mr Kamal Haasan. That’s why I’m worried whether I’ve done justice to my character.
I’ve put in my best efforts. Both my producer Shah Rukh Khan and my director Farha Khan are extremely happy with what I’ve done. Apart from a great role Main Hoon Na has given me some great friends. The relationship I share with Shah Rukh and Farha is unreal. It’s not as though we meet everyday. But the love and respect is there.
