He may be 55, but age has not waned his desire to give his all to cinema. Kamal Haasan, who completed 50 years in cinema, said in a recent interview that it was his desire to act in the remake of his super hit film Silangai Oli. Made in Telugu as Sagar Sangamam, the movie directed by K. Viswananth and starring Jayapradha was a huge hit. The classical dance theme of the movie and Kamal’s portrayal (as a dancer who sacrifices his life for the art) won him accolades. The movie, when dubbed in Tamil as Silangai Oli, repeated the same success as in Telugu.
Talking about the film, Kamal said that if any director wished to remake the film, he was ready to essay the same role once again. He said that he may be 55, but he is still ready to do a film like that.
We have no doubts that he would still sizzle as a dancer at 55, as he did decades ago.
