Posted on: June 22, 2009

After successfully holding an international screenwriting workshop here, acclaimed actor-director
Kamal Haasan now plans to produce, direct and act in some short films ? based on the Tamil Nadu
capital.
?My whole life revolves around Chennai. I can never forget those moments I spent in Kodambakkam and
AVM Studios. I am surprised to see the old Chennai onscreen,? Kamal Haasan told reporters after announcing his new venture.
?Can we imagine the sight of chariot hurtling down the Mount Road and people walking leisurely on the
stretch? Our attempt is not towards making some money, it is recording the historic memory of
Chennai,? said Kamal Haasan, who is known for his experiments on screen.
Stating that he would wield the megaphone for one of the short films, Kamal Hassan said: ?From over
250 participants of the Chennai Screenwriting Workshop, we would handpick the works of 30. That would
be added into short films.?
Besides Kamal, veteran film maker and director of L.V. Prasad Film and TV Academy V. Hariharan would
choose the scripts.
The initiative was inaugurated by acclaimed French director and Oscar winner Jean Claude Carriere,
who recalled his association with Chennai.
?For me India is South. It is the land where strongest tradition of arts exists,? said Carrierre, who
has penned the script for Kamal Haasan?s ?Marudhanayagam?, which never took off.
