The Thing about Bharathiraja is that he is all heart and is very emotional.
The man, who brought such an idiomatic change in Tamil cinema with his 16 Vayathinile, is now making Cinema, a Hindi movie that takes off on the life of a director.
Is it autobiographical? Certainly not, asserts the direct.
He is making the film as Bommalattam. The film's muhurat was held at Malaysia.
Arjun is acting in the Tamil version, and he deems it a privilege to be part of a Bharathiraja venture.
Meanwhile, Bharathiraja, who is no stranger to controversies, has made a quick trip to the war-torn Sri Lanka.
He says the plight of Tamils there is pathetic and is very heart-rending.
Bharathiraja has also met LTTE chief Velupillai Prabhakaran.
