'Ulaganayagan' Kamal Haasan rose to the occasion on Saturday, March 9, and made a massive donation for the construction of the Nadigar Sangam building. The leading Tamil actor contributed a sum of Rs. 1 crore for the setting up of the establishment from his own funds by handing over a cheque to administrators Nasser, Vishal, Karthi and Poochi Murugan. Kamal Haasan's latest decision to extend the amount to the cause of the Nadigar Sangam has come after he and 'Superstar' Rajinikanth laid the foundation stone for the structure in April 2017, with the construction coming to a subsequent halt due to various financial hurdles. 

Kamal Haasan's financial contribution for the Nadigar Sangam building's construction comes after Udhayanidhi Stalin, Minister of Youth Welfare and Sports Development of Tamil Nadu, too made a donation of Rs. 1 crore last month. Expressing his gratitude for Udhayanidhi's gesture at the time, Vishal wrote on X, "Dear Udhaya, I sincerely thank u as a friend, producer, actor and now sports minister of Tamil Nadu govt for your contribution to our South Indian artistes association building efforts and your willingness to finish it as early as possible and also coming forward to help in any way through the government  also.  Indeed a lovely gesture. God Bless." (sic) According to reports, the Nadigar Sangam building will include an auditorium, a marriage gall and a mini hall along with a parking space. It is further being stated that the auditorium on the property will be used to organize award functions and other cinema industry-related events. 

Meanwhile, on the work front, Kamal Haasan is currently filming Thug Life, which marks his big reunion with iconic Tamil filmmaker Mani Ratnam after more than 35 years when they collaborated in the cult classic, Nayakan (1987), and will feature music by Academy Award winner A. R. Rahman. The actor is at present awaiting the release of the highly-anticipated Indian 2, the sequel to the blockbuster Indian (1996), and is also his reunion with hit director Shankar, while the songs and the background score are being composed by 'Rockstar' Anirudh Ravichander. Kamal Haasan is also playing a key role in Telugu superstar Prabhas' Kalki 2898 - AD being directed by Nag Ashwin of Mahanati (2018) fame and will feature the duo appearing alongside Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Disha Patani, among others. The Tamil superstar had also announced the tentatively titled KH 237, which will be directed by National Award-winning stunt duo Anbariv in their big filmmaking debut.
