“I don’t want to become a ‘superstar’; like many of superstar Rajinikanth’s fans, I’m eagerly looking forward to the day when I’d be able to meet and talk to him from close quarters,” were the words uttered by Vidharth, who has just had his ‘Mudhal Idam’ releasing in theatres all over the State.
Vidharth debuted as hero in last year’s super-successful ‘Mynaa’. The film was directed by Prabhu Solomon and pitted the promising Anaka a.k.a. Amala Paul opposite Vidharth as his heroine. Mudhal Idam, produced by AVM Productions, is Vidharth’s first release ever since he tasted stardom and box-office success with ‘Mynaa’ which won many awards in various categories.
Speaking at a meet-the-press event on the eve of release of ‘Mudhal Idam’, Vidharth said that he was very happy to be playing the hero in a film produced by AVM Productions, one of the oldest production houses in the country. Vidharth, widely considered as a ‘rare talent’ by observers, said that many a time he had watched the AVM ‘globe’ outside the studios with astonishment and wondered whether he would ever make it as an actor.
“My grandfather played sundry roles in films like ‘Mudhal Iravu’ and ‘Parasakthi’ produced by AVM more than 50 years ago. He couldn’t make it big as an actor but wanted me to become an actor of substance. I’m glad I have realized his dream and that I have got the opportunity to play the lead role in a film produced by AVM in only the 2nd film in my career. I have been getting positive feedbacks about the film and am quite happy about it,” concluded Vidharth.
‘Mudhal Idam’, incidentally, is the 175th film produced by the prestigious production house collectively in all Indian languages.
