Director Bala and actor Vikram combination is one of the hit combinations in Tamil cinema industry. It is in fact director Bala who gave actor Vikram the much needed break in his career from which the actor went on to become a big star in Tamil cinema industry. Sedhu was the first movie the director – actor duo did together and the movie earned Vikram the name that is still adding weight to its reputation of being a good actor. Then came the Pithamagan, which earned Vikram a National award for his acting.
After Pithamagan, Vikram and Bala went to work several movies but never joined hands again. However, it seems the time has again come for both the cinema veterans to work together for a new flick. Director Bala is happy with the critical response he got for his latest directorial venture Paradesi that starred actor Atharvaa.
However, the sources say that the director also wants to establish him as a commercially successful director. The sources add that it is because of this reason, director Bala is keen to make another movie now that is intended to work big time in the box office.
What is interesting in this development is that, director Bala is keen on roping in actor Vikram to do the lead role for his flick. Vikram is already committed to Shankar’s I, but it seems the actor is ready to do a quick flick for which he would use the time gap of one month that he will get to groom his body according to director Shankar’s requirement for his role in I.
The sources close to director Bala reveal that the director and the actor have already met to discuss the possibility of doing another flick together. The sources further say that Bala is working on the script right now and add that actor Atharvaa too is going to play another lead role in the movie!
