Rumour mills are rife that the makers of Thalaivan Irukkindran are in talks with Chakri Toleti to direct the mega-budget project. The director, who had earlier directed Kamal Hassan in Unnaipol Oruvan, shares a good rapport with the actor. It is also noted that he has acted with the Universal Star in Dasavatharam.
It is also said that Kamal Hassan is keen on taking up the responsibility of directing Thalaivan Irukkindran, as he himself has penned the story and screenplay. However, things are expected to fall into places once the actor's forthcoming Vishwaroopam hits the screens.
Thalaivan Irukkindran is produced by Aascar Ravichandran. The Nayagan star had earlier told that he was making the movie on corruption. Explaining further, Kamal Hassan claimed that people think politics as an easy source of making money and his next film will focus on such issues.
