RJ Balaji is gearing up for the release of his first hero outing LKG on February 22nd. The team is doing some really interesting promotional campaigns to attract the attention of the youth, and they are doing a fine job of it so far. LKG will be released in TN by Sakthi Film Factory who are sure to come up with a smart release strategy for the film. RJ Balaji has now signed on for inarguably the biggest film of his career so far. We hear from authentic sources that he will be playing a pivotal role in director Shankar’s upcoming film Indian 2, starring Kamal Haasan, Kajal Aggarwal among others.
Balaji has said in recent interviews that he doesn’t want to keep playing the usual ‘hero friend’ roles and that he wishes to play roles of substance. His decision to play the lead role in LKG is also a natural extension of his decision to stay away from the usual. We are awaiting more details on his role in Indian 2 but we can be rest assured that after films like Naanum Rowdy Dhaan and Ivan Thanthiran, Indian 2 will take Balaji to an altogether different level. His reach will be widened and his real-life image of being a social activist - public rights crusader will also get a major fillip with such a high-profile political drama.
