Among the many interesting projects that the ‘Lokanayakudu’ Kamal Haasan offered in his career, one film stood out. It is the Tamil movie Panchatantiram which got dubbed into Telugu as ‘Pancha Tantra’. True to the title, it comprised of five well known actors and it was one rollercoaster ride of comedy and entertainment.

Now, the talk in Kodambakkam area of Chennai (this is like the filmnagar of Tollywood) is that Panchatantiram may have been rebooted. A set of five young heroes namely Vishal, Karthi, Arya, Jayam Ravi, Jiiva are coming together for a new project. They are not taking any remuneration in this project for a noble cause.

Buzz is that directors are now working towards shaping up a script that will justify the presence of all the five heroes. This has triggered a gossip that maybe the Kamal Haasan starrer might be rebooted and given a modern touch that can suit the taste of contemporary audience. The suspense will be unraveled very soon.
