The fans of both Mohanlal and Tamil actor Surya are eagerly waiting for the release of Kaapaan directed by K V Anand. The songs and teaser of the big budget film have been accepted well. Now the director of the film has made a revelation. Super hero Amitabh Bachchan was first approached for the role of Mohanlal, he said this in an interview given to a Tamil media.
He said, ‘We first approached Bachchan sir. As he had some date issues, approached Mohanlal. He has done that role well. All characters including Surya have positive and negative aspects in the film. More than a take was needed for a particular scene. Still Surya was not satisfied and so had to go for one more take.”
Jilla was the last Tamil film of Mohanlal with Vijay. Lalettan’s entry with Vijay were well received by both fans and Tamil audiences. Kaapaan is the latest film of Anand after Ayan and Matran. Mohanlal plays the role of Prime Minister Chandrakanth Varma and Surya as NSG officer. The main highlight of the film is the arrival of the two. Surya’s last film NGK was a flop.
