Haasan’s comedy not shelved
Actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan’s upcoming multilingual comedy, Sabash Naidu, currently put on hold, has not been shelved, confirms a source close to the star. “Kamal sir is busy with the Bigg Boss show. Contrary to some reports, Sabash Naidu has not been shelved and will be revived very soon. It had to be stalled when he had a leg injury followed by some unfortunate events,” said a source close to Kamal. Last July, Haasan fractured his leg after he slipped and fell at his residence. The injury put him out of action for nearly seven months. The team had made plans to resume shoot from last December. “The make-up team from the US, [for] Kamal sir’s prosthetic look, wasn’t available, as they were on a Christmas break. Therefore, the shoot had to be pushed to this year,” the source added. Sabash Naidu, a spin-off on Kamal’s Balram Naidu character from Dasavatharam, is being shot in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. The film also stars Ramya Krishnan, Shruti Haasan and Brahmanandam.
