Aachariyangal Director Harshavardhan met Padmashree Dr. Kamal Haasan

The director of the upcoming film Aachariyangal, Harshavardhan along with his team, meet Ulaganayagan Kamalhaasan recently. Harshavardhan, while talking about this meeting, says

Rajkamal Films International & IIT Madras conducted a Screen writing workshop 3 years back & I was one among the 250 lucky participants. While speaking on the last day of the event, Mr.Kamalhaasan said I have been spilling blood for the last 3 decades to make the cinema that I believe in and Iam prepared to spill even more blood for that cause in future as well, which was truly very inspiring. From that day on, I started to believe that new directors like me also should share the responsibility of taking the tamil cinema to the next level.

Now, I have directed a film called Aachariyangal, which has a very novel script. We had decided not to have songs for this racy commercial thriller & have shot the film without any songs. I feel that I have derived this courage from none other than Mr.Kamalhaasan & desperately wanted to meet him to show my movies trailer & get his blessings.

Kamal Sir agreed to meet me, after hearing that I had participated in his script-writing workshop as a student. Our PRO Nikil helped us a lot in arranging this meeting & our heartfelt thanks for him. I, along with my films hero Taman Kumar & cinematographer Deepak met Kamal Sir on an afternoon. Inspite of his busy schedule Kamal Sir spent a lot of time with us discussing our film & its concept. He liked our movies trailer very much & appreciated us whole-heartedly. The fact that I have not worked under any director or undergone any formal education in film making was quite surprising for him & he gave me some good advices about strengthening the basics in film making. We could never forget those few minutes that we got to spend with The Legend. He is truly a Universal Star.
