Kamal Haasan’s political entry and his constant controversial tweets have put him on the center stage in Tamil Nadu. In a bid to quickly cash on his present popularity, some of his old films are being digitalised and getting re-released. One such film is Meendum Kokila, a blockbuster with Sridevi in the female lead, which is getting an image makeover. DC speaks to ‘Darwin Movies’ Deva, the maker of the digital version about the revamping.
When asked if it is a deliberate attempt to release digital version of Kamal’s movie now, Deva says “Oh no! I am a big fan of Kamal sir and we have already released the digital version of his hit film Vetri Vizha earlier. And we have also lined up sir’s other movies like Kakki Sattai and Kadhal Parisu among others. So, Meendum... has been in the pipeline for a while,” reveals Deva.
The film will hit the marquee on December 15, with the makers planning to release it in approximately 50 screens all over Tamil Nadu.
