Director Lokesh Kanagaraj is a self confessed fan of Kamal Haasan and there is a buzz that his upcoming film would be produced by Raaj Kamal Films and it would feature superstar Rajinikanth in the lead.
With Kamal completing 60 years in the film industry, director Arvind Sridhar of ‘Simba’ fame recreated the actor-filmmaker-politician’s popular song ‘Potta Padiyudhu…’ from ‘Sathya’ and it was released by none other than Lokesh Kanagaraj.
The ‘Maanagaram’ and ‘Kaithi’ maker posted, “I take immense joy and pride in wishing @ikamalhaasan sir on 61years of kamalism. Im honoured to release the “REBEL ANTHEM” a location-based cover of the 1987 classic song “POTTA PADIYUDHU” from SATHYA created by “SIMBA” director Arvind Sridhar as a tribute. Kudos @simba_arvind.”
Touched by it, Kamal responded, “@simba_arvind @Dir_lokesh I am touched. This does not seem like simple nostalgia. This is unconditional love. The return gift from my side could & should only be of the same kind. Love you guys. My motivation, in a marathon you all have allowed me to run.”
