Vikram's new challenge in Bollywood

Written By Chiyaan Vikram on Friday, February 10, 2012 | 9:53 AM

There are 3 characters named David in Bejoy Nambiar's new film of that title. Director Bejoy Nambiar confirms this. For the Tamil superstar, a fluent and articulate command over the Hindi language is one helluva challenge.

And Vikram is up going to make sure he is up to the challenge. One major reason why most South Indian superstars, from Rajnikanth and Kamal Haasan to the late-comers Suriya and Rana Daggubati have been unable to make appropriate headway in Bollywood is their inadequate command over the Hindi language.

Tamil icon Vikram, who had hoped to establish a belated foothold in Mumbai with Mani Ratnam's 'Raavan', found his pan-India aspirations thwarted by his thickly accented Hindi.

Vikram is ready for a second attempt at Bollywood. For Bijoy Nambiar's 'Michael' Vikram is apparently learning his Hindi from scratch.

The task is doubly difficult since Vikram plays a Mumbai-based Catholic character.

Says a source, "Vikram first has to get rid of his thick Tamil aaccent and then learn to speak the anglo-Indian bhasha in Mumbai which is very different from the way the Catholic community speaks in other parts of the country. It's a double pain for Vikram."

Says Nambiar, "Yes, we will work hard on his Hindi. He is gonna be kickass. I always wanted to work with him since I saw his work in Sethu. The anglo-Indian character in my film suits him perfectly."

Nambiar who knows Vikram from the time he assisted Mani Ratnam thinks the accented Hindi is no problem. "If you see Raavan. You can't really make out the Tamil diction in his Hindi."

Not quite the truth. And Nambiar knows it. This is why Vikram is spending time with two Hindi tutors. Ek Mumbai ke liye, doosra Michael ke maafiq.
