Whenever one superstar is seen in a cameo, automatically the value of the film increases, be it Tubelight or even Zero. Speaking of which, Amitabh Bachchan was also said to do a cameo in Kamal Haasan upcoming film Vikram. That’s right. Not Singam star Suriya but Big B was the first choice for the cameo in Kamal Haasan starrer Vikram but it didn’t materialize as it was a very small role. During a fun conversation with Bollywood Bubble, Kamal Haasan also revealed an interesting insight into why Amitabh has not done any regional films.

The Hey Ram actor exclusively wrote, “We thought of it but then I had to go to Suriya because it’s too small a part and I’ve been asking Amitji to do a film regionally for many years. No, it’s not because he was unwilling, he was worried about the number of dialogues and he said ‘I always understood my lines and spoke, I don’t know how you do it but this is how I do it. So, can I speak in Hindi and then you’ll dub it?’ No, I want you to speak Tamil, he said ‘let me think about it’. That was the only reason he would have said no and this is too small a part I said I don’t mind asking him but what will I say, why this. Because I know that I’ve just asked him to come for a function all the way from here to Chennai to celebrate me and he did, why would he not come to do.

Meanwhile, Amitabh Bachchan and Kamal Haasan have worked together in films like Geraftaar and Khabardar in the past. Well, even though we are not going to see the Piku actor with Kamal Haasan in Vikram, it would be interesting to see how Suriya plays the character.
