Kamal Hassan to play George Bush

A forth coming Tamil Film Dasavatharam, directed by noted director K. S. Ravikumar and music by Himesh Reshammiya, stars Kamal Hassan, Asin Thottumkal, Mallika Sherawat and Jayaprada in the lead roles. The movie is still being shot on various locations in India and abroad. The film is set for Diwali release, Nov 7, 2007, and upon release will be subsequently dubbed into six other languages, Hindi, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, Bhojpuri and Bengali with the same title.

In this film Kamal Hassan will portray ten different characters. Know for his perfection, Kamal Hassan, at present, is busy trying to emulate George Bush’s body language and mannerisms by watching all the tapes of the US President’s speeches and meetings. Before he got under the skins of all other characters that he played, he spent hours in learning the character for a very real performance.

When quizzed about his role as George Bush, Kamal confirms and says, “It’s true that I am playing the US president Georget Bush’s character in Dasavatharam and i m very much excited as the part has turned out to be exceptionally good.” A huge set, which replicates the White House in Washington, has been built in Chennai’s Film City for the shooting of this film.

Besides playing Bush, Hassan is also likely to play the role of a Brahmin priest, a dwarf, a scientist, a fighter, a black man, a tourist guide, an old woman, a beggar, a young lady and an emperor.

This film has given rise to great expectations even before its release. Watchout, as the film is set for a diwali release, Nov 7, 2007.
