Kamal Haasan is back on humour track. His next film ‘Manmadhan Ambu' will retain the flavours of the actor's blockbuster romantic comedies sparkling with wit and humour and yet will be different from his other projects in more ways than one.

Kamal Haasan, who is pairing up with Trisha in the film, said the cast, including Madhavan and Sangeetha, was a strong support for the movie and they promptly turn up for rehearsals.

“I have always insisted on continuous rehearsals before any shooting begins. Theatre artists make a flawless performance on stage with their meticulous rehearsals. Film actors should also get into the practice of rehearsals as they save time and money,” he told mediapersons here on Thursday. The actor was tight-lipped about the south Indian film industry's tiff with Bollywood actors attending the IIFA.

K.S.Ravikumar, who is directing ‘Manmadhan Ambu', said the film would be a refreshing treat for the audience as it packs in a lot of fun and romantic elements. “Kamal sir has been one of the best romantic heroes the film industry has ever had. Film-lovers will be glad to see him donning the image again. The movie will shape up into an enjoyable fare,” he said.

After ‘Avvai Shanmugi,' ‘Panchathantram' and ‘Dasavatharam,' Ravikumar wields the megaphone for Kamal for the fourth time. A major part will be shot in Italy, Spain, and Greece . The film is produced by Udayanidhi Stalin's Red Giant Movies. Devi Sri Prasad scores music and Manush Nandan handles cinematography. Kamal has scripted story and screenplay and also composed a few lyrics .
