On Friday, a special screening of Hey Ram (2000) has been organized in a leading multiplex in Chennai. The screening will be followed by question and answer session on the making of the film with Haasan himself.

On the career front, Haasan is currently working on Shankar’s Indian 2 (2020), which marks his returns as the nonagenarian vigilante, Senapathy. The makers recently completed shooting the second schedule in Bhopal and Gwalior.
