Music director G.V. Prakash Kumar, the baby-faced nephew of Oscar-winner A.R. Rahman, appears all set to become a hero in Kollywood. The 25-year old music director recently completed scoring music for 25 films when Vikram’s Thaandavam hit the screens last weekend.
Reports emanating from Kolly circles say that GV Prakash has given into the temptation of trying his hand at acting and might soon be making his debut as hero in a film to be directed by Rajasekar Prakash, who had earlier been assisting director-producer A.R. Murugadoss in all his films.
Directors turning heroes has been a regular phenomenon in Tamil films. However, music directors haven’t played lead roles in Tamil films except for making a ‘special appearance’ or playing brief roles. Deviating from this unwritten rule, music director Vijay Anthony debuted as hero with Naan which released a couple of months ago. To his credit, Anthony had done a wonderful job and the film turned out to be an average hit film.
Apparently following suit, GV Prakash is said to have decided to make his debut as hero for which talks are going on and nothing has been finalized as yet. The heroine and other artistes in the proposed film are to be chosen.
It may be recalled that some time back, GVP had hinted that if he was ever going to act in films, he’d prefer only pairing up opposite a Bollywood heroine.
