Vikram, the new big star?

DC | Lipika Varma | 14th Feb 2013

The country knows Vikram due to Raavan, and now thanks to David, the versatile actor is building up on that popularity.

His upcoming film, I, portions of which are being shot in Hyderabad because it’s a Tamil-Telugu bilingual, is a record holder of sorts. Its budget is a staggering Rs 175 crore and 30 per cent of the film has been shot in eight different countries. It will also be the first South Indian film to release in China.

Within a day of the release of David, the actor got six offers. “Getting six offers within just 24 hours after the release proves that people liked and appreciated my work. I chose the film because the content as well as my character was something different.”

About the offers, he adds, “I will not disclose names but yes, the offers are from writers and directors. I have not read the scripts. I may go for all six of them provided the scripts inspire me.”

About his current work in T-town, Vikram adds, “Currently I have just one Tollywood film, I, being directed by Shankar. It is a multilingual movie. I cannot divulge more about the film.”

On South stars migrating to Bollywood, he adds, “I think a film is a film everywhere as the business is the same. But Hindi films do have a wider audience. Making movies is a sensitive profession and if one decides to make films in different languages, he has to identify with the language.”
