Hyderabad, Dec 30 (IANS) Actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan feels that he has had not one but several mentors who've inspired him over the years.

"Even though I consider K. Balachander as my first mentor, but over the years I've had so many mentors such as Balu Mahendra, P. Bharathiraja, Ramesh Sippy and Dasari Narayana Rao, who have always inspired me with their work," he told reporters at the audio launch of Telugu version of "Vishwaroopam" here Sunday.

"I screened the first copy of my film (Vishwaroopam) to my mentors recently. Unfortunately, Dasari sir and Balu Mahendra sir couldn't attend it due to other commitments, but the overwhelming feedback I've received from KB sir and Bharathiraja was very satisfying."

"Vishwaroopam", a Tamil-Hindi bilingual action-thriller is written, directed and produced by Kamal and he himself is playing the lead. It also stars Pooja Kumar, Andrea Jeremiah, Rahul Bose and Shekhar Kapur in important roles.
