After Pooja Kumar had acted three films with Kamal Haasan (Viswaroopam I and II and Uthama Villain) and she was spotted in his family functions, there were speculations about their relationship.
Clearing the air, the actress said she was part of the family pic because she knows Kamal’s family right from the time she started working with him. Pooja knows Kamal’s brother and daughters as well.
She said that it’s only that she has known the family right from the beginning and close to the family. She also said that she is not part of Kamal’s upcoming film Thalaivan Irukkindran as of now.
But she further hinted that she might be roped in saying who knows, when asked about the reports of her playing a role in the film. The movie will be jointly produced by Raaj Kamal Films International in association with Subaskaran of Lyca Productions.
As far as Thevar Magan sequel is concerned, it is said that Vijay Sethupathi will be playing Nasser’s son in the film. The original film, Thevar Magan (1992) starred Sivaji Ganesan, Kamal Haasan, Revathi, Gauthami and Nasser in crucial roles and revolved around the character Sakthivel, who solves the problems of villagers.
Sources say that Vijay Sethupathi has developed a good rapport with Kamal Haasan over the past few months and the former expressed interest to collaborate with him for a project. We hear that Vijay Sethupathi will be seen playing the role of actor Nasser’s son in the film. Nasser played the antagonist in Thevar Magan.
On the other hand, Kamal Haasan’s Indian 2 shooting will be resumed as soon as the lockdown is lifted. The film, which is a sequel to the 1999 film Indian, is directed by Shankar. Indian 2 has Kajal Aggarwal, Rakul Preet Singh and Siddharth in key roles.
