Actor Bharath is badly in need of a hit film to sustain himself in the industry; his last decent film was the Simbu-Anushka starrer 2011 film Vaanam but as solo hero it goes way back to 2009 Kanden kadhalai opposite Tammanah.
Bharath has been off late spotted with beard and long hair at various recent filmy events. Bharath says that the appearance is for upcoming film 555 ( Triple 5) which be believes would resurrect his acting career.
555 is being directed by Sasi, who has made some quality films in the past such as Sollaamalae, Rojakootam, Dishyum and Poo. With 555, Sasi appears to be taking the route to ‘action films’ but neither the director nor Bharath are willing to divulge any details about the script. The bearded-look that Bharath sports at present is said to be for the climatic sequences of the film which are yet to be shot.
Bharath, who recently conducted the grihapravesam for his new home at Chennai’s Saligramam locality, is also happy that the makers of the film Killadi which was started long back but was abandoned midway has re-started the film’s shooting schedules. A. Venkatesh, who has directed many riveting action flicks in the past, is directing Killadi and shot some sequences recently.
For the record, Bharath has reportedly decided to drop the Chinna Thalapathy title from his next film onwards!
