Bala is the person who brought Vikram to the limelight through his film Sethu. Right from those days itself, Vikram has started becoming close with Bala.
After Sethu, Vikram had acted in Pithamagan which was also directed by Bala. Vikram is currently acting in I directed by Shankar.
The films Rajapattai, David and Thaandavam in which Vikram donned the lead role were not so successful at the box offices.
After seeing Paradesi, Vikram went straight to Bala’s house and praised him. He also gave an idea to Bala that both can join hands once again. The shooting of I is taking place in intervals.
Though there is shooting of this film I till the month of November, the graphic works are going on. Hence Vikram has sufficient time to act in a film in this gap.
So Vikram will be donning the lead role in a film to be directed by Bala. Chezhian will handle the camera while G V Prakash will compose music for this film. For the first time Bala has taken a city based story in his hands.
