Kamal's Maruthanayagam shooting began in Velangudi (near Karaikudi) on
Aug 10th. Kamal's get-up is something like this: Beard and long lady-like
hair knotted at the end. Stars like Mamooty, Cheeranjeevi too play small
roles. Rajini too may play a role.Kamal seems to have talked him into it.
Nagesh has a very different and original make-up in this film. OmPuri is
out. Satyaraj is in. Art director is Sabu Siril. Music is by Isai Gnani. The
shooting spot is heavily guarded by Chennai based Karate expert
Husaine's High Profile group. The next schedule is in Kerala. There is a
French Heroine in the movie. Kamal has bought 100's of acres near
Chengulpet for shooting purposes. Several horses are being trained there.
The movie is being made in Tamil,Telugu,Hindi,English and French.
Kamal's friend is hanged and Kamal cries as he holds the body in his
lap.(This was the first scene that was shot. Not quite a cheerful begining.)
