It is strongly rumoured in Kollywood circles that Kamal Haasan has been helping his Vishwaroopam and Uttama Villain co-star Pooja Kumar in landing up film offers.
Pooja, who debuted as heroine in Tamil films almost two decades back, went back to U.S. where she found the job as a newscaster and was brought back to Tamil films by Kamal Haasan who signed her up as his heroine in his super-hit film Vishwaroopam a few years back and cast her again as heroine in Uttama Villain as well. Both of them were very close while promoting Uttama Villain.
Rumours (unconfirmed, though) say that their close proximity might have caused the recent split between Kamal Haasan and Gautami. The latter went on record stating that her 13-year long ‘live-in’ relationship with Kamal had ended but stopped short of blaming anyone for the split.
Kamal and Pooja Kumar were spotted together again in Meenkuzhambbum Mannpaanayum which released in theatres last week. Produced by Prabhu, it stars Jayaram’s son Kalidoss and Aashna Zaveri in lead roles. Pooja Kumar has played a significant role in the film which also has Kamal Haasan essaying a cameo after a very long time.
