Wednesday, January 21, 2015 • Tamil Comments

'Ulaganayagan' Kamal Haasan recently took to his personal YouTube account to reveal information on his 'Marudhanayagam' and 'Vaamamargam' projects. After there were reports and news flying around stating that both these projects are the same, Kamal decided to give a proper explanation regarding the matter.

Kamal addressed the question whether 'Marudhanayagam' and 'Vaamamargam' stories are same or different by saying he can't say anything at the moment now. He also stated if he never got to tell the story of 'Marudhanayagam', he would present it to us in his own style.

He quoted a conversation between him and PC Sreeram where PC said, "People know who Gandhi and Nehru are. But, how many people know about 'Marudhanayagam'? Will this work?" For which, Kamal responded by saying, "People may not be knowing who 'Marudhanayagam' is now. However, I have firm belief that everyone will come to know about 'Marudhanayagam' before the movie's release or after the movie gets released."

He then went on to speak about 'Vaamamargam' saying it was a story very dear to him. When asked about the title not being a Tamil title, he said, "The time has come for us to go international and that the film is going to be in world standards. He also said, "When you have a Tamil story which has a universal appeal, then you have to go with an appropriate title."

He then went on to say, "If you're going to make a film about Robert Clive or Shakespeare, then it is mandatory that you have to go with their names as the title rather than looking for a Tamil title."

In his final statement, Kamal stated that production work is progressing at a brisk pace and that work will commence soon for both 'Marudhanayagam' and Vaamamargam'.
