Kamal Haasan’s next film, a rib-tickler titled Sabaash Naidu, will see him working with daughters Shruti and Akshara for the first time. The Tamil star will reprise the role of the humorous Balram Naidu from his 2008 hit Dasavatharam for the film.

The film will see Kamal joining hands with well-known Malayalam filmmaker T K Rajeev Kumar after a period of over two decades, when the duo gave the critically acclaimed Chanakyan, a revenge saga.

While Shruti will play an important role in the film, Akshara has joined the team as an assistant director. “Akshara has joined the project and she will be assisting director Rajeev Kumar. This is the first time Kamal sir will be working both the daughters on the same project. Shruti Haasan will be playing his daughter in the film,” a source from the film’s unit said.

It is a trilingual film to be made in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi and went to the floors on Friday. The first look of the movie showed Haasan precariously perched on a bike with top Telugu comedian Brahmanandam on the pillion.

Ace musician Ilayaraja will score the tunes while Kamal will handle the story and script. Shukla will pen the dialogues for the Hindi version, titled Sabash Kundu. The film will be extensively shot in the US.
