Actor Vidharth is a product of Koothupattarai where he trained hard for many years as an actor. After playing sundry roles in many films, Vidharth debuted as hero in last year’s super-duper hit film Mynaa which was directed by Prabhu Solomon and had young Amala Paul starring opposite him in a village belle’s role. Thanks to the treatment by the director and amazing performance by the lead cast, the film was one of the big hits of last year.
Amala moved ahead and further established her status as an upcoming heroine by this year’s Deivathirumagal in which she had the opportunity to rub shoulders with the likes of Vikram and Anushka. Vidharth, who had his Mudhal Idam produced by AVM releasing a few monts back, saw the film disappearing from the box-office no sooner than it was released in theatres.
Realizing that he should be careful in choosing his roles, Vidharth’s next offering would be Kollaikkaran directed by Tamilselvan, a former aide of the national award-winning director Seenu Ramasamy. Vidharth sounds confident as he says “Kollaikkaran is bound to do well at the box-office. Unlike some directors who keep on changing the script during the shoot, debutant director Tamilselvan has only bettered the original script which would be liked by the masses.”
Debutant director Tamilselvan too hopes to strike it rich with his first film. “Crimes such as murder and robbery are followed up and those who commit are brought to book by the law-enforcing agencies. However, minor mistakes and crimes committed by commoners go unnoticed and unpunished. These mistakes have the potential to turn into major crises in future and the situation could easily go out of control.
“Many of us undergo such predicaments which can’t be revealed that easily. My film is about such a situation in which the hero finds himself. Newcomer Sanchita Shetty has paired up opposite Vidharth and has done a pretty neat job,” concludes Selvan.
