Chennai | It’s good news for actor Kamal Haasan’s fans. His next film ‘Papanasam’ would hit the screens as planned on July three as the decks were cleared after deliberations with the distributors last night.
Sources said a section of  distributors were miffed with the actor as his last film ‘Uttama Villain’ did not do well at the box office.
They were up in arms and even decided not to cooperate for the release of ‘Papanasam’.
However, a compromise formula was worked out between the distributors and the actor and the former agreed to extend all cooperation. ‘Papanasam’ is the remake of Malayalam movie ‘Drishyam’.
Jeethu Joseph, who directed the original, has also helmed the Tamil version while Ghibran had composed the music.
Papanasam also has Gauthami, Niveda Thomas, Asha Sarath, Baby Esther, Anant Mahadevan, MS Baskar, Kalabhavan Mani, Delhi Ganesh and many others in the cast. It was produced by Sripriya Rajkumar and George Pious.
It may be recalled that ‘Uttama Villain’ faced some financial constraints and eventually it had a delayed release after a series of efforts taken by various bodies of Tamil cinema.
