Chennai: Actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan's period crime drama Hey Ram has turned 16, and the star went down memory lane, reminiscing some of the best moments of the film and thanked his actors and fans.

The film's semi-fictional plot revolved around India's partition and the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi.

On Friday, Kamal specially remembered the role essayed by actor Mohan Gokhale, who passed away while shooting for the film. The role was later offered to Atul Kulkarni.

Kamal also wrote the above, adding that he wishes to showcase late Mohan's performance from the film to all.

The film had music by legendary composer Ilayaraja. Kamal said Ilayaraja's score was a "case study in film-making".

Written and directed by Kamal, the film featured an ensemble cast of Rani Mukerji, Hema Malini, Abbas, Girish Karnad, Vasundhara Das, Nasseruddin Shah among others.
