Kamal Haasan is currently in the midst of an impressive comeback, having signed up for numerous exciting projects. The seasoned actor, who took a substantial hiatus from cinema, marked his return to the silver screen with the resounding success of the action thriller Vikram in 2022. Now, the versatile artist is gearing up to collaborate with some of the finest filmmakers and technicians in the Indian film industry for his upcoming ventures.
For those unfamiliar, Kamal Haasan had initially announced his first onscreen collaboration with the acclaimed filmmaker H Vinoth around mid-2023. This project, tentatively titled KH 233 and expected to be the actor’s 233rd cinematic venture, was highly anticipated as a political thriller. However, recent updates suggest that the project has been shelved, leaving fans disappointed.
Originally slated to commence filming in early 2024, KH 233 has gone silent since its initial buzz-generating announcement. The absence of any updates or mentions of the project in Kamal Haasan’s lineup has led to confirmation from the makers that the project has indeed been abandoned. Instead, Vinoth will be directing his efforts towards a new project with Dhanush, for which he is currently crafting a script.
Sources reveal that Kamal Haasan made the decision to drop KH 233 in favor of focusing on his collaboration with Lokesh Kanagaraj. This move aligns with their successful partnership in Vikram, a film that not only holds significance in Kamal’s illustrious career but also stands out in the Tamil cinema landscape. Vikram is the second installment in the Lokesh Cinematic Universe, following Kaithi. The buzz around Kamal and Lokesh joining forces once again is gaining momentum, promising another noteworthy chapter in their cinematic journey together.
