Trouble is brewing for Kamal Haasan on the sets of Drishyam remake. The actor has been filming some scenes in the Nanguneri Mutt late last month, and already, things have gone a little awry for him. Said a source close to the unit, “Male devotees have to take off their shirts before entering the temple, and it is a strictly enforced rule. But, for the past few days, Kamal Haasan has been shooting with a shirt on inside the premises, and this has angered the devotees.” While there has been no formal complaint yet, the story seems to have reached the Papanasam team, who immediately tried to even things out. Director Jeethu Joseph is said to have clarified that the scenes require Kamal to wear a shirt and that no disrespect was intended.
Kamal Haasan and Gouthami Tadimella star in this as yet-untitled remake of the hit Malayalam movie. Directed by Jeethu Joseph, who conceived the original, the film began shoot only recently. Nivedha Thomas and Baby Esther play the children of the real life couple while Jeyamohan has penned the dialogues.
