Bharathiraja eyes direction yet again


Bharathiraja has been praised for his performance as Vishal's dad in the Deepavali release Pandiya Nadu prompting calls for him to don the greasepaint more often.

Meanwhile, looks like Bharatiraja would be wielding the megaphone again, after Annakodi. Sources have it that he has asked national award-winning Seenu Ramasamy to come up with a script for a project which he (Bharathiraja) intends to produce under his own banner.

However, sources close to Bharathiraja said a call on who would direct the film has not been taken yet, though Seenu Ramasamy was keen that the veteran should do it.

Seenu was quoted as saying that he had met Bharathirajaa at the airport, and during the chat he narrated a story following which the veteran asked him to come up with the complete script as he would like to direct the film.

He also indicated that the film would be set in Theni and will be a rural drama-cum-thriller with Vimal likely to play the male lead.

It is said Seenu is presently busy with the script and hopes to meet Bharathiraja soon after which a decision on who would direct it would be taken.
