Kamal Haasan is set to return to Bollywood with a bang in a bilingual Hindi-Tamil venture tentatively titled "Kumar Sambhavam", which will see him pairing up with Madhuri Dixit.

While His protégé Madhavan is busy shooting his third Hindi film "Bawarchi" (soon to be re-titled "Ramji...London Se") in London with model Samita Bangargi, Kamal Haasan is all geared up to do the epic film.

To be directed by Sangeetham Srinivasa Rao, who earlier fashioned the trend setting silent movie "Pushpak" with Kamal Haasan, the project has been in the pipeline for months now.

Only Dixit's approval is required. Dixit, who earlier worked with director Rao in Kumar Gaurav's home production "Phool", is reportedly all for the new project with Kamal Haasan.

Kamal Haasan said: "Madhuri and I have never worked together before. When I wrote the script for 'Kumar Sambhavam', I couldn't think of anyone but her.

"My film requires a woman of substance who would look convincing as a wife and mother. There was really no second choice for the role."

Negotiations for the film are in the final stages.

Bharat Shah, who's financing the project for producer Kamal Haasan, has taken upon himself to get Dixit, who earlier worked in his financial undertaking "Devdas", to sign on the dotted line.

The deal is expected to be finalised soon.

With Dixit's nod for the film almost certain, Kamal Haasan's project looks like a very tempting proposition.

The film also requires another leading man. "I already have someone from Mumbai in mind for that role. But I'll reveal his name only after Madhuri is finalised," said Kamal Haasan, currently shooting the Tamil version of "Munnabhai MBBS" in Chennai.
