We has earlier reported that Kamal Haasan is all set to start the sequel to superhit film ‘Devar Magan’ soon and has planned to shoot it in one go at Pollachi and pre-production work has started. It was also said that Kamal Haasan himself will be directing the film with another young hero playing the other lead along with him in the film.
While there was a buzz that Makkal Selvan Vijay Sethupathi is likely play an important role in his upcoming film titled ‘Thalaivan Irukkindraan’, the latest is 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 after the death of his father, a village chieftain. In the climax, Nasser is killed by Kamal Haasan and looks like ‘Thalaivan Irukkindraan’ will be about the his son played by Vijay Sethupathi’s revenge against Kamal Haasan.
Produced by Lyca Productions and Raaj Kamal Films International, the film marks the reunion of AR Rahman and Kamal Haasan after 19 years. Their last project together was ‘Thenali’ in the year 2000.
