Meenkuzhambbum Manpaanayum: Kamal Haasan to play witch doctor in upcoming fantasy film
Earlier it was reported that actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan is playing a cameo in an upcoming comedy drama Meenkuzhambbum Manpaanayum, but the makers kept the role under wraps. However, it is now revealed that Kamal Haasan is playing the role of a voodoo doctor.
Though it is a brief role, the character is a vital element of the story, according to the director Amudhesvar. “Kamal sir will be seen in a brief role as voodoo doctor. He comes in the film to perform a rare experiment of soul transferring between two individuals,” a source from the film’s unit told IANS.
Amudhesvar is making his debut as a director with the film. Meenkuzhambbum Manpaanayum also stars Kalidas, Ashna Zaveri, Prabhu and Pooja Kumar in pivotal roles.
The film is jointly produced by Dushyanth Ramkumar and his wife Abirami under Eshan Productions. Incidentally, Dhushyanth is grandson of late legendary actor Sivaji Ganesan.
Kamal Haasan is also working on two other projects simultaneously. One of the two films will be directed by actor-director Moulee and the dialogues will be penned by Crazy Mohan. Fans are looking forward to the comedy film, since the team is known for their previous venture Pammal K Sambandam.
The veteran actor is also working on a project with Malayalam director Rajeev Kumar. The yet-untitled multilingual project also has Kamal’s daughter Shruti Haasan in the lead.
