Salman Khan, Jackie Chan, Kamal Haasan in epic film?
If it happens, it would be the dream cast to end all dream casts
Speculations are rife that Tamil film producer Aascar Ravichandran is looking to cast Salman Khan, Jackie Chan and Kamal Haasan in a Rs 400 crore mega film. If it ever gets off the ground, the film is likely to be a sequel to Chan’s 1986 smash hit Long xiong hu di that you and I know as Armour of God. Chan directed that film. He, of course, is no stranger to India as he appeared alongside Mallika Sherawat in The Myth and he was due to play the role that Tom Wu eventually played in RA.One, but Shahrukh Khan couldn’t afford his steep fee. If Chan ends up directing this film, he’ll have to put up with two other filmmakers on his sets as Kamal Haasan is a director in his own right, as well as a notorious ghost director in the league of Aamir Khan, and Sallu is supposedly unofficially co-directing the Dabangg sequel. Interestingly, Aascar used to call himself Oscar and his company’s logo was the renowned statuette. However, when Kamal-starrer Dasavathaaram released in a blaze of global publicity, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences took umbrage and he had to hastily change. No matter, he still laughed all the way to the bank, as he made the film for Rs 60 crore and collected nearly Rs 300 crore worldwide. Click here to read more
