Bharathiraja made film buffs excited with Paravai Kootil Vaazhum Maanga, a segment of Amazon Prime's Modern Love Chennai, recently. The veteran filmmaker has been playing notable roles in a few projects of late. Thiruvin Kural and Vaathi were his releases this year as an actor.
Thiruchitrambalam, Rocky and Eeswaran were a few movies in which he showcased stunning performances in recent years. He is now set to act under the direction of his son Manoj. A couple of stills featuring the two discussing the project were unveiled recently.
His name is now doing the rounds on social media for recollecting an old incident involving Vijay. Apparently, the latter's father and filmmaker SA Chandrasekhar approached the former to launch Vijay under his direction. However, he wasn't keen on doing the same and asked SAC why he was not interested in launching his son with a film.
Bharathiraja recollected this during a recent interaction with a YouTube channel and described Vijay as the current number one hero. He also added that years later, he had once asked Vijay if he remembers the incident, to which the latter replied that 'It's still fresh in his memory'.
Film buffs are now curious to know if Bharathiraja is keen on directing more projects. Paravai Kootil Vaazhum Maanga, starring Kishore, Vijayalakshmi, Ramya Nambeesan and Delhi Ganesh in lead roles, is about a couple who decides to part ways.
How the entry of a woman in the husband's life affects the entire family forms the rest of the story. Bharathiraja dedicated the segment as a tribute to Balu Mahendra.
