Actor-producer Delhi Ganesh said Kamal Haasan’s support for his forthcoming Tamil maiden production “Ennul Aayiram”, which introduces his son Maha in the lead, worked as a confidence booster for the entire team.
“Kamal sir and I have worked together in several films and our relationship has always been very cordial. I’ve never told him anything until he has asked me. Likewise, when I was planning to launch my son, he got to know about it while we were working on ‘Papanasam’,” Ganesh told Bollywood Country.
“A common friend had told him that I was planning to launch my son, and Kamal sir said he already knew about it. I requested him to unveil the audio of the film and he immediately agreed,” recalled Ganesh.
Months later, Ganesh was at Haasan’s residence with his wife and the team of “Ennul Aayiram”.
“We had originally planned to have the audio launch in an auditorium, but Kamal sir suggested that we do it in his house, with a banner of the film in the background, because he didn’t want me to waste an extra penny more,” he said.
It was a special day for Ganesh and his son.
“He patiently heard all the songs and later watched the trailer, appreciated the director and wished my son. He need not have to do all that, but he did it because of the mutual respect we have for each other. The support he showed really boosted our confidence,” he said.
Slated to release later this month, “Ennul Aayiram” is about common problems a 25-year old encounters in his life.
