We all know what a method actor Vikram is. In fact, Vikram and Suriya are two actors of the current generation who come very close to Kamal Haasan when it comes to method acting.
Vikram’s artistic longing never gets satiated. He loves to challenge himself with the impossible and come out successfully. His Sethu, Kasi and Pithamagan are perfect examples of pure love for acting and his penchant to overcome the impossible. Not driven by motives of vanity, he does it because of his sheer love for acting and showmanship – a real showman would always come up with something new, exciting and challenging just to thrill his audience. His satisfaction comes from the thrill and merriment of his audience. And that is what Vikram is aiming to do now – thrill audiences with yet another stellar performance.
There is a rumour in Kollywood that Vikram is following the life of a deaf-mute! Well, six years ago, when he followed the lifestyle of a few visually-challenged people, Kasi happened (2003)! It is also heard that Vikram is holding many discussions with script writers about such roles! So we might soon get to see Vikram appearing in a seemingly impossible role, just like his exact portrayal of a blind man in Kasi or a mentally-disturbed man in Sethu.
Vikram goes an extra mile even for his “commercial roles”. At present, he is dedicated to Kanthaswamy (which is almost done) and Mani Ratnam’s Ravana. And going by these rumours, soon we can see this wonderful actor come up with a stupendous performance as a deaf-mute.
