I don’t need Salman, SRK to sell my film, says Kamal Haasan

Kamal Haasan rubbishes rumours of having approached Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan for his next.

However, Saif Ali Khan is likely to receive a call from the actor-filmmaker’s office for his next film Amar Hai.

After his mega-budget Vishwaroopam, which he is currently filming, Haasan will be focussing on Amar Hai.

The movie doesn’t have a role that would fit either of the Khans. “However, there is a role in Amar Hai that suits Saif, but we haven’t approached him yet. We will do so soon,” says Haasan.

Rubbishing rumours of having approached Jackie Chan, Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan for the project, Haasan says, “I don’t know how many Khans I am supposed to have approached. I am not some Bollywood-struck regional actor trying to associate my name with them.”

Haasan is miffed with reports that portrayed him as Bollywood-starved. “I am not looking for a footprint in Hindi cinema any more. My cinema is mine, no matter what the language,” he says.

Rumours about Chan started after Haasan met him at a function in Chennai where a producer suggested they do a film together. “I don’t need to work with Jackie Chan or Tom Cruise. Given a chance, I’d like to share screen space with only one actor Dilip Kumar.”
