Bala, the popular South Indian actor, has maintained a strong presence on social media despite not having any recent film projects. In a recent interview with Filmi Beat Malayalam, he shared that he initially had plans to direct the Suriya-starring film, Kanguva. According to Bala, he will be directing a film with Alphons Joseph as the music composer.

" I was to direct the Suriya starrer Kanguva but later couldn't do it due to health problems," Bala told Filmi beat Malayalam.

Bala claimed that a music director in his previous project caused him professional harm and hurt him emotionally.

After being discharged from the hospital, he engaged in a war of words with some social media personalities.
