When Kamal Haasan announced in 2016 he would be making a spinoff on the Balram Naidu character from his 2008 blockbuster, Dasavatharam, the excitement among fans shot up.

The film eventually with music by ‘Maestro’ Ilaiyaraaja went on to be titled Sabaash Naidu for the Tamil and Telugu versions followed by Shabhash Kundu for the Hindi version.

We had reported a few days back that actress Shruti Haasan recently joined the team of her ongoing Hindi film opposite Vidyut Jammwal under Mahesh Manjrekar’s direction and that Sabaash Naidu would likely be her next big project.

That being said, we now have an update on the status of Sabaash Naidu with Kamal Haasan himself confirming on Twitter moments back that the action comedy caper would begin rolling soon during a conversation with Bollywood actor Saurabh Shukla, who congratulated the ‘Ulaganayagan’ and his co-star and reputed filmmaker Shekar Kapur for the Vishwaroopam 2 trailer.

It now remains to be seen when Kamal Haasan will return to the directorial chair next for Sabaash Naidu considering he also has his Indian 2 under Shankar’s direction lined up next.

Sabaash Naidu includes names like Ramya Krishnan, Brahmanandam, Vir Das, Manu Narayan, Anant Mahadevan among others and will likely be jointly produced under the Raaj Kamal Films International and Lyca Productions banner.
