Veteran actor Kamal Haasan and his daughter Shruti will team up for the first time ever, for a yet-untitled Tamil project that is expected to be rolled out soon.
Audiences will soon be able to see the father-daughter duo playing themselves on screen in a film directed by veteran Malayalam filmmaker TK Rajeev Kumar. A source close to the Haasans confirmed the news to IANS.
"Contrary to the rumours, Kamal and his daughter are not coming together for upcoming Tamil comedy Appa Amma Vilayattu. This is a different project altogether and it will feature Shruti as Kamal's daughter".
The source said that the team plans to go on the floors by the end of the month. The rest of the lead cast will be finalised in the next few weeks, the source added.
"Since Kamal was already in talks with Rajeev for Appa Ammaa, he brought him on board to direct this film, which will feature his script. Kamal has been working on this script for a long time.
Haasan is in talks with maestro Ilayaraja to compose the music for the film. "In about a week's time, both Ilayaraja and Shruti will officially be part of the project," the source added.
The film will be shot in the US, where Haasan is currently finalising the locations.
