In a surprising turn of events, the much-anticipated project KH233 by Tamil superstar Kamal Haasan has been dropped after creating a wave of excitement among fans.
The actor announced this movie last July along with a promo video. Tentatively titled KH233 with the tagline "Ready to Rule," the announcement teaser showcased a silhouette of Kamal Haasan wielding a torch lamp, symbolizing readiness to rally the troops.
Filmmaker H Vinoth was set to helm the project, both writing and directing Kamal's KH233. The project was gearing up for production, with filming expected to commence soon and a slated release in cinemas later this year. Kamal, in addition to playing the lead role, was also set to produce the movie under his home production banner, Raaj Kamal Films International.
The promotional video itself bore striking resemblances to Kamal Haasan's political journey, drawing parallels with his political party's symbol, the torch. Kamal also underwent training in handling military-grade rifles in the US while preparing for the movie.
However, despite the initial buzz and excitement surrounding KH233, recent developments indicate that the project has been dropped, leaving fans disappointed and curious about the reasons behind this sudden change.
Kamal was last seen on the big screen in director Lokesh Kanagaraj's Vikram. And he has multiple big-budget movies in different stages of production.
Kamal's long-delayed Indian 2 is fast nearing completion and is expected to hit the screens soon. He has also started shooting for the multi-starrer Telugu sci-fi Kalki 2898 AD, which also stars Prabhas, Deepika Padukone and Amitabh Bachchan among others.
In the meantime, Kamal started shooting for Thug Life, marking his reunion with director Mani Ratnam after more than three decades.
Kamal will also play the lead role in the directorial debut of action choreographer duo Anbarivu. The project is still in pre-production and is expected go on the floors soon.
