Film-maker Atlee Kumar has said that he would love and relish the challenge of directing superstar Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan in the same film, if he ever got lucky enough to get such a chance in future.
“Raja Rani, Theri and Mersal were the scripts which I penned with specific artistes in mind for the characters in these films. Like music is composed of seven ragas, all the scripts one could visualize ought to be within certain limits. I create the concept of my scripts with people’s help. I also don’t demand much from the producers as my fee and take only what is given to me befitting my status in the industry.
“I would love to make period type films like Kalki’s Ponniyin Selvan; if I’m ever asked to remake a film, it ought to be Thalaivar’s Baashha and I would love to direct Rajini Sir again in the remake,” says Atlee.
On another note, he said that he would relish and love the challenge of directing Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth in the same film. “I’d consider myself extremely lucky if I ever got this chance; I’m also ready to direct a film starring Vijay and Ajith Kumar in the lead,” he said and added that thought he got a few film offers to play the led role, his concentration stayed focused only in making films and not starring in them.
