At any given point in time, director Bala flaunts a choice battalion of fans for his films. It is true that actors queue up for a chance to work with him. The latest addition to the list is 'Ilayathalapathy' Vijay. In a recent programme, Vijay declared "I would love to work with director Bala".
Humble as ever, director Bala wonders why this craze among the actors. "I don't understand why all the actors fancy working me. Some even say that those who act in my films stand a chance to be one among the top actors. But I do not understand why. After all, I don't make an ace actor out of anyone. I simply guide them as to what they have to leave back for perfection. I don't add anything new to their profile, I only remove that which is unwanted; and I believe that makes an actor, ideal" says the simple man.
