Kamal plans for mega budget film with KS Ravikumar?

Actor Kamal Haasan and director K.S. Ravikumar have had a highly successful association which has spanned for close to two decades now.
The duo has worked together in films like Avvai Shanmugi, Thenali, Panchathanthiram, Dasavathaaram and Manmathan Ambu. Except for Manmathan Ambu which released last December, all other films have been super-duper hits at the box-office.

Ravikumar was to make Rana starring superstar Rajinikanth and Deepika Padukone in the lead. As Rajini fell ill and had to be hospitalized at Chennai and Singapore, the film's shoot got postponed. Last month, it was officially announced that the film's shooting would be commencing only from August, 2012. In the meantime, Ravikumar is presently assisting Soundarya by supervising her direction of Rajini's upcoming film Kochadaiyan.

Sources at Ravikumar's office said that Ravikumar and Kamal Haasan might come together for the sixth time to make another film. It is said that the film might be launched in the second half of 2012. Ravikumar is penning the story, screenplay and dialogues for Rajini's Kochadaiyan besides assisting Soundarya. The animation film's work is said to have been completed which has given Ravikumar the time to sit down and pen a script for Kamal.

Kamal Haasan reportedly liked the one-liner narrated to him by Ravikumar. When it becomes a reality, the film would be a mega-budget affair, it is said. The script is likely to deal with a major film against corruption at all levels. As he is likely to do this film, Kamal is said to have informed Shankar not to consider making the sequel to his earlier hit Indhiyan which was also a film against corruption.

The action-thriller would deal with the way major business houses and corporate firms do everything possible at their disposal to evade all sorts of taxes. Keep watching this space for further updates!
