Kamal Hasan’s movie Dasavatharam’s visual imagery has impressed not just his average fans but also Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi as well. He was so impressed that he personally called Vairamuthu in Australia and conveyed his enthusiasm.
Kamal Hasan said "The fact that the Chief Minister enjoyed the pictures with youthful enthusiasm and pinched my cheek with affection as if I were a kid is equivalent to celebrating the success of Dasavatharam with a huge function,"Some the actions sense includes a spellbinding fight sequence featuring Kamal Hasan in a face-off with himself which took Hollywood action director Joop 20 days to shoot. Three different software companies were used to build the visual effects and some of the best graphic designers. This project truly is an international project.Sets which cost about Rs. 3 crores are being created by hundreds of workers in Chennai just for two songs. Asin did her part to make this movie unique.
According to audiographer, Sridar, Kamal has dubbed in ten different voices for his ten different roles and this was done without digital treatment.Just to show the intensity of the project, there is a scene featuring 10, 000 people’s voice with 5, 000 people, which makes the entire scene rich in detail, including sound effects. The part of action featuring him and Asin was performed with “small tricks” so it will not be risky, if only India ’s stuntmen followed them they would not risk their lives and limbs.The audio is by Himesh Reshamaiah’s music group and the lyrics by Vaali and Vairamuthu. This film is expected to be released by October in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi.

Asin, has moved lock, stock and barrel from her Harrington Road apartment in Chennai to her Lokhandwala flat, Andheri west in Mumbai. Tamil cinema's 'numero uno' heroine of 2007 has decided to take the most crucial career move in her life, by shifting to Mumbai!
Is the queen of Kollywood abdicating her throne? Well it looks like that, at the moment. She has only one Tamil film coming up for release, Dasavatharam in the summer of 2008. Asin has not signed a single Tamil film this year, which means she is unlikely to have another release next year.
Meanwhile the smart girl that she is, has become a Mumbaikar! You can spot her frequently at the posh Infinity mall near her apartment or at PVR's Juhu multiplex. She is just catching up with the latest in fashion and also watching all new releases in Bollywood and picking up the finer points. Last week Asin and her family were spotted at PVR, catching up with the Ajit- Nayanthara film Billa!
Last Sunday evening Asin was the cynosure of all Bollywood stars at the sneak preview of Aamir Khan's Tara Zameen Par. Everybody was keen to have a look at Aamir's new heroine; after all he is the hero who has introduced iconic heroines like Rani Mukerjee, Juhi Chawla and Pooja Bhat.
Asin is now finishing the Hindi Ghajani with Aamir, which is likely to release in the summer of 2008. It is Aamir's first commercial masala movie after a long time and if it clicks Asin will straightaway enter the 'A' league of actresses in Bollywood. As of now the actress is flooded with offers in Hindi and is considering three big Hindi films.
She is being offered to be cast opposite the hot and happening young Bollywood hero Shahid Kapoor in his new film to be directed by Ken Ghosh. Another role that is exciting Asin, is to play Amitabh Bachchan's daughter in writer-director Honey Irani's new project on the emotional relationship between a father and daughter. And another project that is waiting for her is a new Salman Khan musical entertainer to be directed by his brother Sohail Khan.
But Asin on her part is in no hurry to sign any films till the shoot of Ghajani is over. She has used her own voice in the film which is being shot with sync sound. The actress is also working hard on her Hindi diction, as she is very particular that she dubs in her own voice for all her Hindi films. Asin, the Kochi girl has made herself accessible to Bollywood and is on the right track to superstardom by moving to Mumbai.

Asin is merely not happy with the Dasavatharam press release, as it has said that Asin is lending her voice for the very first time! Due to this the gorgeous beauty is a bit disappointed. Later Asin explained that she has dubbed in her own voice in all her films right from her debutant movie M. Kumaran Son of Mahalakshmi to the latest hit Pokkiri. The ravishing beauty is shocked and said, “I don’t know how the crew has forgotten this!”
