Bharathiraja slams BalaPublished: February 3, 2016
Veteran director Bharathiraja has come down heavily on filmmaker Bala, for the latter’s attempt to make ‘Kutra Parambarai’. “It is my dream project and everyone in the industry knows it. How can he do this,” asks the ‘Iyakkunar Imayam’.
Stating that he had immediately telephoned Bala as soon as he came to know about his attempts to make ‘Kutra Parambarai’, Bharathiraja said the ‘Sethu’ and ‘Thaara Thappattai’ maker was unable to answer his questions.
Bharathiraja blamed a writer for the fiasco. “Kutra Parambarai is about the pain underwent for generations by my forefathers. Only I can do justice to it. No one else can. Don’t claim ownership for someone else’s hard work and dream,” he said.
At present, the ‘Mudhal Mariyadhai’ director is playing the lead role in a film titled ‘OM’. “Those who had watched the ‘rough cut’ said that the movie would take Tamil cinema to next level. I am happy about it,” he said.
