Ever since music composer Vijay Antony turned into an actor, he has been giving us at least 2 films in a year. His next, Kolaigaaran, will be hitting the screens on Friday. The film is directed by Andrew Louis Vasanth of Leelai fame and features Arjun Sarja in an important role. Ashima Narwal, an Australian model, is the female lead with Simon King as the music composer and Mukesh handling the cinematography. Ahead of the film’s release, Vijay Antony talks about the film and also explains why he is not a good actor yet.
In an interview to a popular English daily, Vijay Antony states, "After I turned into an actor, I have done ten films, Kolaigaaran being my 10th. I am a multitasker having dabbled in editing, producing, distributing, acting and music composing. That’s when I realized that multitasking has taken a toll on my emoting skills as I am pre-occupied with other things. Now I have decided that I will do only one thing at a time. I want to turn a better performer and refresh myself. I was a sound engineer for 5 years, music composer for 7 years and an actor only for the last 5 years. So I still have time to catch up on acting.”
He also further explains that cinema is a big medium and it is very difficult to get a strong foothold. "It is just not enough that one is blessed with good looks and talents," he adds. About the different ideas in the promos of the film, Antony gives the credit to producer Pradeep and also Dhananjayan. He states, “Producer Dhananjayan presents the movie. More than making a film, promoting it in the right way and reaching out to the masses is very important. That way, Dhananjayan is doing a great job. He is promoting it with creative posters paying tributes to old and recent classic thrillers for the last few weeks. It has been well received.”Read More
