Vasanthabalan says Tamils addicted to American culture

Vasantha Balan

Director Vasanthabalan has just returned from the thick and dense forests in the foothills of the Western Ghats after spending cloe to a month there for shooting the first and second schedules of his upcoming film ‘Aravaan’, a period type film set more than 300 years ago. In his typical style, Balan has reportedly ‘warned’ his assistants not to leak about the script to the media-persons.

Nothing has, though, prevented him from sharing his experiences in shooting the film in the dense jungles on his Facebook account on internet. Balan has given brief but appropriate description of the forest and its surroundings and the various animals he encountered during the shooting of the film. He concludes by saying that he took care not to ‘damage’ the forest while shooting there.

‘Aravaan’, which stars Aadhi and Dhansika in the lead, is billed as the best work yet by the director, whose last film ‘Angaadi Theru’ catapulted its heroine Anjali to the status of a bankable actress. Balan regretted on his Twitter account that he was apprehensive that we (Tamilians) are fast becoming slaves of Americans by usurping the pizza, burger and coke culture from them.

Balan’s fears are not far from reality; are they?

    Engluku culture’nu onnu irka? I mean namba aambalengluku? Culture’na ennanu theriyuma onku?

    Bus’la travel panrapo romba onnuku vanthalum atha adkikitu vanthu veetla porathu thaan culture. Irka athu engluku? That is just one example. Thamilar do not demonstrat adequately refined culture in 90% of what they do in their lives. Therefore it is not wrong to look around in order to learn culture.

  8. i support both of the above comments.. why cant we eat western food? hello? it’s jus food!! westerners also eat indian and other asian food.. in fact they love indian food.. only indians draw a circle around them and miss out on all the gd things..    
         
    i thought highly abt vasanthabalan and respected him till i saw a video on youtube which shows the making of the song ‘un perai sollum’ from angadi theru.. he beats the hero of the movie with a clothes hanger.. very uncivilised and babaric act!! my whole family was disgusted when we saw tat video..
