Speaking at the trailer launch of Kadaram Kondan, Kamal Haasan, co-producer of the film, confirmed the release date as July 19th. Haasan also rued that the arrival of Chiyaan Vikram got late. “Sethu should have come a little before. I used to feel for Vikram’s struggles before he received a hit film like Sethu. Vikram has assured that Kadaram Kondan will be like a Hollywood film. One needs guts to say that. I have watched the film and you all will definitely enjoy it,” said Haasan.
Vikram said, “I used to see one English film a week when I was studying in Yercaud. During special occasions, we used to have the opportunity to pick Tamil films. Invariably, all my friends and I would pick only Kamal Haasan sir films. I love his movies. I didn’t think even for a minute when I was approached by Rajesh Selva. Still, when I heard the story, I loved it. My role here is something very different and unique. I’ve done Dhruva Natchatiram with a lot of style, but Kadaram Kondan will be in a different league.”
Produced by Kamal Haasan under the banner Raaj Kamal Films International in association with R. Ravindran of Trident Arts, Kadaram Kondan is written and directed by Rajesh Selva of Thoongavanam fame. The film also stars Akshara Haasan and Abi Hassan in key roles.
