Chennai: Actor Kamal Haasan would be acting in a Tamil-Malayalam bilingual helmed by National Award winning Malayalam director T K Rajeev Kumar next.
"Discussions have been going on for a while and a script will be locked soon. But Kamal will work on the project before beginning the comedy penned by Mouli," revealed a source close to the actor.
Interestingly, director Rajeev Kumar made his directorial debut with 1989 film 'Chanakyan', starring Kamal Haasan, and this new project will see them teaming up after nearly 26 years.
In 2010, the director had expressed a desire to work with Kamal again and it looks like that wish has finally been fulfilled.
Kamal is leaving no stone unturned to ensure that 'Cheekati Rajyam' strikes a chord with the Telugu audience. The film's audio launch is likely to take place in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
