Chiyaan Vikram Outshone Junior B In Raavan

Written By Chiyaan Vikram on Sunday, December 26, 2010 | 9:52 AM


“After Raavan, I know I will be dubbing my films (in Hindi) simultaneously. I know there will be takers, however few”

His turn as the good guy in Raavan eclipsed bad guy Abhishek Bachchan. In its Tamil version Raavanan, he turned spectacularly bad, and gave us a reason to watch the film. His first foray into Bollywood with Aparichit in 2005, one of Shankar’s dubbed-in-Hindi over-the-top extravaganzas, continues to run in a loop on television. Vikram speaks to Shubhra Gupta about pulling off the difficult feat of being an award-winning actor and a durable star, his trials with Hindi, and the reasons to cross existing south-north boundaries. Excerpts:

Has life changed after Raavanan?

Raavanan is the best thing that could have happened to me.

I did get a few offers after Aparichit, but I was uncomfortable with Hindi. For us (top heroes) it is really huge here, what we stand for, what we have worked at. There is no reason for me to go to Bollywood to be one of three heroes, or just another protagonist. If I go anywhere, I’d rather play a Pithamagan (for which he got the National Award in 2003) or a Sethu (Salman played his role in the remake Tere Naam: both films were huge hits), or a Raavan. It’s different for the girls. Someone like Asin can go to Bombay and be the glam quotient of an Aamir (Khan) and a Salman (Khan) film, and then return here and do a film. I can’t at this moment battle against an Aamir or a Shah Rukh, and I can’t leave everything here unless it is with a big director like Rajkumar Hirani or a Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
