"The happenings in the script have the be changed needs to be reworked, as it was originally written for a 40-year-old protagonist. Either I have to change the time frame and reimagine the proceedings, or I have to find another suitable actor to play the role," he said.
Kamal also added that he has recently written a ballad of sorts on the mythological character Kansa/Kamsa, titled Chinna Kansa. Kansa, often described as a rakshasa, is the brother of Devaki, the mother of the god Krishna in Hindu Mythology. Krishna later slew Kansa, as per the myth.
