Kamal Haasan started the project Marudhanayagam with a lot of fanfare in the year 1997 in the presence of Queen Elizabeth. But this project was put in cold storage within a few days of shooting due to lack of funds.
The Ulaga Nayagan was recently asked about the prospect of reviving this project, to which he had replied that there is every possibility, provided he gets international producers. Stating that it is not an ordinary project that can be financed by Indian producers alone, Kamal said that the enormity of the film requires finance from international production houses. He added that the film will be made in Tamil, English and French when it is revived.
