A few days ago, we reported that Kamal Haasan directed a song sequence in Sabaash Naidu, after its director Rajeev Kumar fell ill. Now the latest we hear that the ‘Ulaga Nayagan’ has taken over as the movie’s director.
In a statement, Kamal said, “My director, Rajeev has taken extremely ill. The unfortunate setback occurred when we were on the fourth day of our recce in Los Angeles.”
“He has been diagnosed with Lyme disease. It is a rare infection prevalent in Europe and North America. This is the reason I am now directing the film… I moved in as a standby director hoping my friend, Rajeev, will recover soon,” he added.
Now, Kamal fully takes over as director of Sabaash Naidu
The actor-director further said: “It seems he will, but not in time to finish this film, which is tightly scheduled to end principal shooting by July-end or the first week of August. I am sure when he is up and about, he will have many more films to direct.”
