Why Vijay chose Bharathan for his 60th film?

Friday, November 20, 2015 • Tamil Comments

As it has been confirmed that Bharatan will be directing Ilayathalapathy Vijay's 60th, film a section of people started trolling the move as Vijay's previous association with Bharathan for 'Azhagiya Tamil Magan' resulted in a box office failure.

But many who are cynical and skeptical about Vijay's decision, do not know that the story of ATM was not written by Bharathan and it was not the one he intended to make a film with Vijay.

Sources in Kollywood who have been keeping a tab on Vijay's development over the years reveal an insider's story behind the entire episode, which has prompted Vijay to give another film for Bharathan who needs a crucial break in career. We present it to Indiaglitz readers with a precaution that this may be a rumor.

Bharathan narrated a story written by him when he got the first opportunity to direct Vijay. However, the actor insisted Bharathan to write the screenplay and dialogues for another story which had impressed him and make a film on that. Bharathan accepted Vijay's suggestion and made the film.

Bharathan delighted Vijay as a comfortable technician to work with. He completed the shooting of the film within the time frame promised by him.

More importantly, after the release of the film and its poor response at the box office, Bharatan never spoke anything bad about Vijay's decision to go with the story and never lamented to anyone that his debut would have been successful if he was allowed to direct the story he had in mind for Vijay.

This quality of not pointing fingers for an unfortunate result has highly impressed Vijay and that's why the star decided to work again with Bharathan who desperately needs a chance to prove his mettle as a director. 'Vijay 60' will have the story and script written by Bharathan.

it is worth noting that Bharathan has written the dialogues for Vijay's blockbuster 'Ghillie' and Ajith's super hit film 'Veeram' directed by Dharani and Siva respectively. Bharathan has also directed 'Athithi' the Tamil remake of a Malayalam film which was critically acclaimed.
