Avan Ivan girl Madhu Shalini is playing a vital role in Kamal Haasan's forthcoming action thriller, Thoongavanam. The actress in a recent interview praised Kamal Haasan for his mastery over the art of acting."With Kamal sir on sets, you're constantly learning. I mean, he's been acting since he was a child and anything he does now would be a cakewalk. But he still sits and works on something till he gets its right. This whole experience of watching him and learning from close quarters helped me evolve as an actor," she was quoted saying.

Said to be an official remake of French film Sleepless Nights, the film also has Trisha, Prakashraj and Sampath in important roles. Directed by Rajesh M. Selva, the team is looking forward to release the film for Deepavali.
