Kamal Haasan’s ‘Aalavandhan’ inspired Quentin Tarantino

We hear that Hollywood director Quentin Tarantino admires Kamal Haasan’s 2001 film Aalavandhan

Tamil superstar Kamal Haasan, who is just gearing  up to enter Hollywood has indeed come a long way and Pulp Fiction director admires the actor’s film work.In a conversation with ace Bollywood filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, Tarantino, who is popular for Pulp Fiction and Inglourious Basterds, said he used comics effects for his Kill Bill series for the most gruesome scenes, taking a cue from Aalavandhan. Reacting to this, Kamal has said, “When I did the animation action sequence 12 years ago, it was seen as self-indulgent and odd by a lot of people. Now that it has been endorsed by a filmmaker of such brilliance, critics will be kinder to some of the things I attempt in my films.”

At present, Kamal Haasan is all set to start his Hollywood flick, in association with Barrie Osborne. The Hollywood producer, utterly impressed by Kamal, said recently: “His knowledge of history, literature and films is encyclopaedic. Kamal presented an idea to me that was so compelling that I couldn’t resist working with him.”
