Director Rajeev Kumar, who was helming Kamal Haasan’s Sabaash Naidu, has reportedly fallen ill in Los Angeles, where the team has been shooting for the last week.

Sources confirm that the director is down with fever and had to be hospitalised. Since the team is on a tight schedule, Kamal has temporarily taken over the reins to avoid any delay.

The actor recently posted a message on twitter saying that he is directing a dance number. 'I am directing the dance as Rajeev is unwell. Hope he gets well soon,' he tweeted.

The director is expected to be back on the sets in a couple of weeks.

The film revives the character of Balram Naidu, the eccentric RAW agent from Kamal’s Dasavataram.

Shruti Haasan plays Kamal’s daughter in the film.
