Kamal Haasan says he held Dilip Kumar’s hand and ‘begged’ him to work on Thevar Magan Hindi remake: ‘I wanted to do it, but he’s decided…’

Kamal Hassan Has been actively promoting his upcoming film Vikram across India, and at a recent event in Mumbai, the actor and filmmaker said that the film speak common language And unite people from all walks of life.

The actor said: “The film speaks a global language. We are a nation with such diversity and wonderful unity. As a nation, we do not speak one language but proudly sing the national anthem. There is an emotion Brings us all together. Movies have a responsibility to unite people. It’s the only place in the cinema hall where you don’t check the caste and status of the man sitting next to you. You just buy a ticket.”

Kamal said that whenever an Indian film succeeds, no matter the language, it deserves to be celebrated. “It’s not the Southern movie that succeeds, it’s the Indian movie. It’s always better than a successful Hollywood movie. Mughal-E-Azam, Sholay and many others have achieved national success. Mughal-E-Azam is not just Wisdom and guts. It took decades to make this movie. We should respect each other. Movies don’t have a single language, movies always come together,” he said.

Haasan was involved in many Hindi films in the 1980s such as Ek Duje Ke Liye, Saagar etc. Here, he is asked how the operation of the two industries has changed since then, and the actor said: “Nothing at all.” Talking about RRR, KGF 2, Pushpa The Rise in Hindi speaking tape Success, the actor recalls, even films like Sholay had a similar effect in the Tamil film industry. “Like when Sholay came, some Tamil filmmakers said they would never let these (Hindi) films come here because they would never be able to make these films, so why should we allow them. They are afraid like Sholay and many other movies,” he said.

Kamal recalls that it was Gulzar’s 1973 film Achanak that inspired him to become a director. He recalled that even though he did not understand the language, watching such a film had a profound effect on him. “When I saw Achanak, I wanted to be a director rather than an actor, what a great movie. I don’t speak the language, but the movie speaks to me. Whether it’s Mughal-E-Azam Whether it was Achanak or Padosan, it touched my heart. Nothing has changed except the audience has a new experience and forgets the old memories. I am much closer to the audience today than my predecessors,” he said.

Kamal Haasan started his acting career in 1973 at Arangetram in K. Balachander and next year he will complete 50 years of acting in the film industry. When asked if his process for signing movies had changed, the actor said casually: “I’m on vacation and they pay me. I love my job and I love movies as much as you do.” He added: “I Sign it (the movie) like I sign it. Whether I sign on that piece of paper or not, I keep my word. I’m the son of a lawyer, so I understand the importance of documents, otherwise documents It doesn’t matter. My paper is my tongue, and my pen is my mind.”
