Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan was in Delhi to promote his upcoming film, Vikram. At a press conference, he discussed the concept of pan-Indian films and the Hindi vs South debate.

During his time in the national capital, Kamal Haasan promoted his upcoming film Vikram. When asked about pan-Indian movies, Kamal Haasan said, “When you pan for gold, you pan for new words, coinage. Pan India films have always been around.” He went on to explain, “Shantaram ji did pan-India films.” ‘Padosan’ is a pan Indian film. Mehmood Ji nearly spoke Tamil in the film. ‘Mughal-e-Azam‘ is something that is also a pan India film for me. It’s nothing new. We are unique. We speak different languages, but we are united. That’s the beauty of this country.

In addition, Kamal Haasan said, “We will always make pan-Indian films. The quality and universality of the film determine whether everyone wants to see it. For instance, the Malayalam film Chemmeen was a pan-Indian film. The film was not dubbed, it didn’t have subtitles and people enjoyed it.”

Having released back-to-back successful movies such as RRR and KGF: Chapter 2, Kamal Haasan also weighed in on the Hindi vs South debate. In his words, he said, “I am an Indian. What are you?” He continued, “I own the Taj Mahal, you own the Madurai temple, I own Kanyakumari, as much as I own Kashmir.”

In Vikram, Kamal Haasan stars as the lead along with Vijay Sethupathi, Fahadh Faasil, Kalidas Jayaram, Narain, Antony Varghese, and Arjun Das. Suriya also appears in the film. Vikram releases on June 3.
