Director Bala suffers a double whammy, left in a soup
Bala is a director who needs no introduction when it comes to his films in Tamil cinema. After all-time classics like Sethu and Pithamagan to all the way to moulding GV Prakash to one of his better performances as an actor in Naachiyaar, the director has been mostly right with his works. However, his current situation in both his career and personal life is a place that no one would want to be in.
One of the most shocking updates came by on Thursday evening when the makers of Bala’s upcoming film Varma (official remake of Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy) decided to throw away the whole project weeks before its worldwide release, saying that they were not happy with the output. E4Entertainment, who had assigned the film on first copy basis to Bala’s B Studios, claimed that they would be restarting the entire project with a new cast and crew but for Dhruv Vikram, who makes his official debut here. This is a one-of-a-kind occurrence in Tamil cinema, with the film already having its teaser launch done apart from finding a distributor for the Tamil Nadu region.
On the other hand, sources reveal that the personal life of the director too has taken a hit, after his wife has gone missing for the past few weeks. A lot of theories and possibilities are being discussed for this incident, with no clarity on the real scene for now.
We really hope that the director can find his way out of all the troubles, and come back strong with a film that will be remembered for ages.Read More
