Vijay is taking a break. He is off to London this weekend! Sangeetaand children are already there with her parents, and Vijay plans tojust chill out for the next two weeks there.
For the first time in hiscareer, Vijay has not announced a new film after a release!2006 has started badly for Vijay. His father was hospitalised andtheir home production Aathi was lukewarm at the box-office. And when he went to New Delhi for the release of a postal stamp, it was given apolitical colour by his detractors. Another set back was when he could not agree with S.J Suryah over the much-hyped Puli storyline and they decided to scrap the project.
All this personal set backs weighed heavily in his mind, so forsometime he wanted to get away from Chennai and work pressures. Thebest way out was to take a holiday, get rejuvenated and then come back to work.
One thing is clear that Vijay’s next film will be produced by Swargacitra Appachan. But the whole confusion is- who will be the director? Vijay wants to go back to the comfort of the `Formula’ and do another Tirupachi or Sivakasi with his favourite Perarasu.But Perarasu is now working on Ajit’s AVM produced Tirupati and has already committed to do another Vijay film for Ayngaran the leading overseas buyer and video rights holder of Tamil films.
Sources close to Vijay say that he will take a call on his next director for Appachan film, only after he comes back from London in mid- February. Till then a lot of directors who have narrated stories to him like Hari, Muthuvadigu younger brother and assistant of hisfavourite director Perarasu and Udayan ( Vijaykanth’s Perarasu director) will be on tender hooks!
Anyway Vijay needs a break; let him enjoy his holiday as he chills out in -8 degrees with his family!
