Renowned actor Kamal Haasan is poised to reunite with veteran filmmaker Mani Ratnam after an extended hiatus of 36 years. Their previous collaboration yielded the iconic 1987 film "Nayakan." This announcement was made last year, and the upcoming project, tentatively titled "KH 234," will mark Kamal Haasan's 234th endeavour in the film industry.

The casting for Mani Ratnam's directorial venture is currently in its final stages, and it is speculated that acclaimed stars Dulquer Salmaan, Trisha Krishnan, and Jayam Ravi may join the ensemble.

According to recent industry reports, it is under consideration for pan-Indian star Dulquer Salmaan and renowned Tamil actor Jayam Ravi to assume significant roles in "KH 234." Although there has been no official confirmation from the project's makers, there is strong speculation that both actors are in advanced discussions to become part of the cast for Kamal Haasan's upcoming film. Formal agreements may be reached in the near future.

If this materialises, "KH 234" would mark the second collaboration between Jayam Ravi and Dulquer Salmaan with director Mani Ratnam, following their successful involvement in the "Ponniyin Selvan" franchise and the beloved "OK Kanmani," respectively. Furthermore, this project would represent their inaugural onscreen collaboration with Kamal Haasan, the film's leading actor.

Furthermore, industry insiders have put forth the notion that Trisha Krishnan, a prominent figure in the South Indian film industry, is poised to assume the role of the leading lady in "KH 234." Despite the absence of an official project announcement, there is speculation that the accomplished actress, known for her role in "Leo," was selected for the role some time ago. If these speculations prove true, this project will signify Trisha's third onscreen collaboration with both the film's leading actor, Kamal Haasan, and the director, Mani Ratnam.

Speaking about KH 234, the as-yet-unnamed project, which is being hailed as a thriller, boasts a screenplay penned by director Mani Ratnam himself. The musical component of the film will be crafted by none other than the Academy Award-winning composer, AR Rahman, who will be responsible for both its songs and original score.
