Barring a few celebrities, many Kollywood stars have stayed mum on this whole issue. Recently, Kamal Haasan, in a media interaction, opened up about the ongoing #MeToo movement and Chinmayi-Vairamuthu row.
While interacting with fans at the grand finale of the season two of Bigg Boss, Kamal confirmed that if audiences love to see him hosting the third season, he will certainly oblige and hinted that he is the host for the new season which will begin in 2019.
Meanwhile, Kamal Haasan will start shooting for his most anticipated Indian 2 from December of this year. There is a buzz that the actor will be seen playing dual roles in the film but nothing has been confirmed yet. To be produced by Lyca, Anirudh will be composing the music for Indian 2 and Ravi Varman will crank the camera.
Kamal also opened about the #metoo movement of Singer Chinmayi Sriprada, He said “The accused should step out and speak regarding the issue. Others who are not associated with it shouldn’t really comment on this whole controversy. I welcome the #MeToo movement if it happens in an honest manner. I see it as a welcoming change.”
He further added that the #MeToo movement shouldn’t be watered down because of any wrong accusations. “The movement should stay genuine. People should be aware of the problems faced by women in society. We have seen many such issues since Kannagi days,” he elaborated.
Kamal Haasan’s much-hyped Vishwaroopam 2 failed to create magic at the box office. The versatile actor is now gearing up for his most anticipated film ‘Indian 2’ with director Shankar and our sources say that the principal shoot is likely to kick start in the month of December.
Earlier there was a buzz in the Kollywood circle is that Kamal Haasan is also having plans to pen the script for the sequel of his blockbuster film ‘Thevar Magan’ which is one of the biggest blockbusters in the actor’s career.
Now the actor had officially confirmed the arrival of the sequel. Thevar Magan is a 1992 Indian Tamil-language drama film directed by Bharathan. The film starred legendary actor Sivaji Ganesan, Kamal Haasan, Revathi, Gauthami and Nasser in pivotal roles.
Wahthaaaaaaaaaaa! #thevarmagan2 is official now 💥💥💥💥💥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

The film was chosen by India as its entry for the Best Foreign language film for the 65th Academy Awards, but was not nominated. The film won five National Film awards, including the Best Tamil film Awards, Best Supporting actress Award (Revathi) and Special Jury award (Sivaji Ganesan).

Indian 2, Devar Magan 2… What next? I think Kamal is already half a politician, just that the election manifesto is actually a movies list 🤔

Am i the only one who would rather want @ikamalhaasan to do #sabashnaidu than #Indian2 or #Devarmagan2 ? Still miss Vasool Raja and Panchathanthiram type of movies… Its been 10+ years since he gave a good full length comedy movie.
