The Tamil version of the Malayalam flick Traffic, a film based on a real incident that took place in Chennai, was rumoured to be remade in tamil with Kamal Haasan. However, director Rajesh Pinlai confirms that it is actor Sarath Kumar who has been signed up for another role in the same film.
Rajesh, though, was willing to let another director helm the Kollywood project if it meant that Kamal Haasan would be part of the Tamil remake. Had Kamal been a part of the film, along with Sarath Kumar, the remake would have turned out to be a casting coup of sorts. The Tamil version is in the pre-production stage and filming is expected to begin only by February next year.
