taking a much needed break from the
terrifyingly intense schedules of
Naan Kadavul, Bala is back with his
next film Avan – Ivan that stars
Arya and Vishal as brothers. Avan
will be Bala’s first attempt
at a full length romantic comedy.
Although he’s finalized Janani
Iyer for a female lead role, the movie
still needs another heroine.
Bala agrees that Varalakshmi Sarathkumar’s
name was under consideration, and
that she later dropped out. Now he’s
being faced with the question: Isn’t
Pooja the obvious choice? But no,
says Bala. “I have made her
life hell in Naan Kadavul and want
her to relax now,” Bala replies
in a matter-of-fact way.
