It is well known news that the first look of Kamal Hasan’s Utham Villan inspired by an image taken by French photographer Eric Lafforgue. But Kamal rubbished all allegations and said that Theyyam is more than a 1,000-year-old art and the make-up was done by a good artist. It took 4 hours to paint Kamal Haasan’s face. But he agreed that the lighting might have been similar. So finally the film circles are saying that Utham Villan is more or less ‘inspired’ by this French photographer.
