Tamil superstar Kamal Haasan is all set to make a return to Hindi cinema as a director and actor with political drama Amar Hai, for which Saif Ali Khan has been approached to play the lead role.
Penned by Haasan, Amar Hai revolves around political intrigue, finance and underworld.
The action thriller is being produced by Virendra K Arora and Arjun N Kapoor.
It is a dream film for Haasan, who has been scripting the film from past six years and is keen to collaborate with Saif, who has already been clued in about his involvement on the mega project. Two actresses are set to join the ensemble cast.
"My character though not that of a conventional antagonist, would present a point of view that is far from ordinary," the 60-year-old star said of his role.
The Vishwaroopam star's last Hindi directorial venture was critically-acclaimed Hey Ram in 2000, though he acted in a Bollywood film Mumbai Xpress in 2005.
The producers said they were excited to work with Haasan, who has an enviable profile as an actor, director, writer and producer with hits like Nayagan, Sadma, Ek Duje Ke Liye, Saagar, Moondram Pirai, Virumaandi, Dasavathaaram, Pushpaka Vimana, Apoorva Raagangal and Chachi 420.
