Udhayanidhi Stalin's next venture to be bankrolled by Kamal Haasan
In exciting news, Tamil actor-politician Udhayanidhi Stalin's next film will be bankrolled by Kamal Haasan under his Raaj Kamal Films International (RKFI) banner. The announcement was made by the latter on Monday during an event hosted by Stalin's production label Red Giant Movies to mark the company's 15th anniversary. On Tuesday, Stalin shared some photos from the event on Twitter which also featured Haasan.
- Haasan and Stalin's bond grew stronger after the latter presented Haasan's recent film Vikram under his production house, Red Giant Movies.
- The duo congratulated each other on the film's humongous success on Twitter and in person.
- However, their collaboration for another title was unexpected and it took the fans by surprise.
- To note, Vikram was also bankrolled by Haasan's RKFI.
While we know that the film will be led by Stalin, no other details have been revealed other than that. It is expected that the makers will soon announce the rest of the cast and crew and the film's title. Sharing photos from Monday's event, Stalin thanked Haasan for gracing the occasion and for also bankrolling his next project.
