Now the entire Tamil film industry is speaking about Vijay's forthcoming projects...yes there are reason for this expectations. When directors like Ameer and Gautham Menon approached Vijay for Paruthiveeran and Khakka Khakka, Vijay politely refused it because he did not want to lose his mass image, but now the actor is having promising projects in his hands- movie with Shankar, Murugadoss, Gautham Menon, Mani Ratnam in a row will certainly raise expectations from all the corners of the industry. If Aaranya Kaandam kind of projects is done by big heroes then our industry will reach the Hollywood standards. Now all the heroes including Vijay, Ajith, and Simbu etc came to know that directors and the script is the basic key for a film's success and definitely not the star power. So this particular change is a refreshing flavor in Tamil cinema. If this continues Tamil cinema will reach international standards.
Why Vijay is needed by all these top directors? The reasons are as follows:
1. Vijay's film can easily collect around 30-40 crores even if it is an average film.
2. If director like Mani Ratnam or Shankar or any other top director joined with Vijay, definitely the market of the director plus Vijay's market will definitely collect 60 +crores, which is a great collection to Tamil industry, if the script is great then it can make more money!!!!!!!
3.Now all the Tamil directors want to take high budget films for that they want to join big heroes like Vijay, Ajith etc (this is the main point)
4.Moreover current political situation is in favor with Vijay.
