Actor-filmmaker Saurabh Shukla is no stranger to Kollywood, having worked with none other than Kamal Haasan in Hey Ram. The actor is back to Kollywood post a long hiatus with Dhilluku Dhuddu, and in a free-wheeling chat, laced with his usual with and charm, he opens up about his character in Dhilluku Dhuddu, his love for Chennai’s food, his rendezvous with world cinema, his rapport with Kamal Haasan, and more.
Kamal Haasan, he says, has been his all-time favorite. “I really adore him for what he is — a tank of talent, a wonderful writer and a good friend”. He also said that they shared a great bond while shooting for Hey Ram. He used to ask him for a list of must-watch Tamil films also. Saurabh feels that Kamal’s writing skills have helped him in emoting.
