Kamal Haasan has roped in a seven-year-old American girl, to play a crucial role in his maiden Hollywood project, which is to be produced in association with veteran Barrie Osborne.
It is said the girl will be seen with Kamal throughout the movie and she forms a pivotal part of the script. "She looks cute and acts well. Hence Kamal is impressed a lot," say sources.
Recently, Kamal screened his new film 'Viswaroopam' to Osborne of the 'Lord of the Rings' fame, and the two are now planning to collaborate on a project. "Kamal's concept inspired me and the discussions we've had convinced me that it would be something worthy for us to pursue," Osborne said.
The Hollywood producer said he met Haasan several times in the past, and decided to work together on a film after seeing his work on Vishwaroop.
"I am impressed by what he has accomplished on Vishwaroop. After that, we started talking on ideas and the possibility of working together. His knowledge of history, literature, and films is encyclopedic. Kamal presented an idea to me that was so compelling that I couldn't resist working with him," he said.
