Kamal and Mohan Lal teams up

The infamous Kandahar Airport hijack case is all set to be made into a film with Mohanlal and Kamal Haasan playing the lead roles. Eight years ago this incident made it to the headlines when the Indian Airlines flight that took off from Delhi was hijacked by terrorists. The hijacked flight landed in Amritsar, Dubai and Lahore before it was finally grounded in the Kandahar Airport in Afghanistan. This entire hijack episode will be made into a film by director Major Ravi. The director, incidentally, was one of the officers who investigated the case. Major Ravi, who had earlier directed the Malayalam movie Keerthi Chakra, is known for directing films based on his real life experiences. Kamal Haasan and Mohanlal will don the role of commandos trying to save the passengers. The film will be made both in Tamil as well as Malayalam. Talks have been going on between the parties involved for sometime now. Kamal and Mohanlal who were busy with their respective projects were not able to commit to the movie. But it seems finally things are settling down with the Superstars agreeing to come together on the project. A final official announcement is expected soon.
