Sakthi overwhelmed with Kamal Haasan's gesture

Chennai, Dec 26 : Tamil director R.C. Sakthi is touched by his old friend actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan's gesture to pen the lyrics as well as croon the title track of his upcoming Tamil short film "Ainthu Rojakkal" despite his busy schedule.

"I believe Kamal is a great friend first and then an actor. I was touched by his friendly gesture to pen the lyrics of the title track of my upcoming short film. He even agreed to sing the song when he recently paid us a visit on the sets," Sakthi told IANS.

Sakthi predicted the rise of Haasan many years ago in the industry and since then they have been good friends.

"We have always remained good friends. He keeps telling me that it's I who inspired him to take up screenwriting and direction. I'm moved because he is a superstar now and yet he expressed interest to contribute to my film," he added.

Kamal was supposed to make his debut as a lead hero in Sakthi-directed Tamil drama "Unarchigal", which was started in 1972 but eventually released only in 1976.

The 45-minute Short film "Ainthu Rojakkal" features the grandchildren of Sakthi in the lead. The film, which also features actresses Sathya Priya and Shobana, is about how social evils have affected the children of today.

Sakthi has also directed films such as "Naam", "Dharma Yuddham" and "Thavam".
