the dream Sanskrit movie

It has been a thought - a dream - for a while ... when will we have a commercial Sanskrit movie with 'mainstream' artists ? and here I am, starting to collect possible artists - feel free to add more in the comments...

1) Thalaivar Rajanikanth - http://www.rediff.com/movies/2008/feb/07sree.htm

He said, 'Malayalam is quite similar to Sanskrit, and I therefore understood all the dialogues very well.'

2) Asin - http://www.simplymalayalees.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=442

She is a native speaker of Malayalam, and claims to speak Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, Sanskrit, English and French.

3) And now Mohanlal - http://malayalam.galatta.com/entertainment/malayalam/livewire/id/Revitalise_Sanskrit_Mohanlal_36630.html

In his speech after accepting the honorary doctorate degree from Governor R.S. Gavai at the special convocation of the Sree Sankaracharya University of Sanskrit in Kochi on Tuesday, Malayalam superstar Mohanlal said that Sanskrit should be revitalised as it represents the culture of the country. Sanskrit was lying somewhere in the layers of mankind and should be revived for the overall welfare of the country, he said


Pointing out that he had not learnt Sanskrit, Mohanlal said that he feels it a great loss while trying to understand the language through his research and acting

How about we arrange to teach you Sanskrit ? :)
