Kamal Hassan has returned to acting in Malayalam films with Saji Surendran's FOUR FRIENDS in which he will essay a cameo role. He last acted in DAISY in 1988 and CHANAKAYAN in 1989.
FOUR FRIENDS is a film based on friendship and the very response of Kamal Hassan has literally made its theme and title more meaningful, said Surendran. While the scenes involving Hassan will be shot only in Chennai, the rest of the shooting is being shot in Alappuzha's Lake Palace Resort in Kerala.
And in this film, the actor will share screen space with his best friend, actor Jayaram. It is being said that Surendran approached Hassan through Jayaram.
Apart from Kamal and Jayaram, the film also includes other leading actors like Kunjakko Boban, Jayasurya and the National award winning actress Meera Jasmine.
The highlight of FOUR FRIENDS is that apart from the cast, the director has used the hit song 'Ye Dosti' of SHOLAY in his film. The popular and inspiring song from the Amitabh and Dharmendra starrer has been remade in Malayalam.
The film being produced by Tomichan Mulakupadom under the banner of Mulakupadom Films will release this October.
