Kamal Hassan and A R Rahman collaborates for the magnum opus 'Thalaivan Irrukindraan'.
The project that was announced way back in 2008 is being revived once again for the third time.
Actor-filmmaker-politician Kamal Haasan is gearing for his next film, Thalaivan Irukkindraan, a project that was announced way back in 2008. Pre-production works continued throughout late 2008, with actors such as Rishi Kapoor, Mohanlal and Venkatesh approached for leading roles. But the project was put on hold citing financial issues.
Later it was revived in 2015 and announced that the film will be made in Hindi as well and will be titled, Amar Hain. While Haasan will play the antagonist, Saif Ali Khan was supposed to play the main lead. Haasan was supposed to return to Bollywood with this project after 18 years and he had planned to write and direct the project.
And now the project is being revived once again for the third time. Kamal Hassan confirmed the news on Twitter on Monday night quoting music maestro AR Rahman's post, in which the composer had teased fans about their new collaboration.
AR Rahman tweeted that he would next join hands with Haasan on a "magnum opus". Tagging Haasan's company Raaj Kamal Films International and Lyca Productions, Rahman wrote: "Happy and excited to collaborate with the one and only @ikamalhaasan himself.
"Thanks, ARR for strengthening the team with your participation. Very few projects feel good & right even as we develop it. Thalaivan Irukkindraan is one such. Your level of excitement for the project is very contagious. Let me pass it on to the rest of our crew," Haasan tweeted to Rahman.

The project marks the third time collaboration of Kamal Hassan with AR Rahman after 19 years. The two previously worked together in Thenali in 2000. The project will be bankrolled by Lyca Productions and Raaj Kamal International.
