Bharathiraja starts ‘Kutra Parambarai’ amid controversyPublished: April 4, 2016
Armed by police personnel, veteran director Bharathiraja has commenced his dream project ‘Kutra Parambarai’. It is to be noted that while the film deals with a controversial subject, the ‘Iyakkunar Imayam’ was also involved in a tiff with director Bala, as the latter too wanted to do the same subject.
Besides wielding the megaphone, Bharathiraja himself is playing the lead role in the period flick. It deals with the pains of members of a particular community, who were stamped as criminals by the British.
Recently, coming down heavily on Bala for his attempts to make ‘Kutra Parambarai’, Bharathiraja said, “It is my dream project and everyone in the industry knows it. How can he do this.”
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.
