Vijay moving in the right direction…

Touted as the most bankable star next to Rajinikanth, Vijay is certainly riding the wave of success, as most of his films are assured of big draws at the box office. Currently shooting for Pokkiri, remake of the Telugu blockbuster, Vijay is working with Asin for this film, that is being directed by Prabhu Deva, who marks his debut in Tamil cinema.
Having done a series of remakes, one wonders if Vijay is following a set formula. “I don’t think there is anything wrong with a remake, as long as the story is worth it,” he says. For Pokkiri, Vijay says that only the main storyline has been taken, with quite a few changes made to suit the sensibilities of Tamil cinema. And with Prabhu Deva at the helm, song and dance sequences are being given a lot of importance. Thanks to Vijay’s dancing prowess, the dance sequences promise to be quite a treat for moviegoers.
While his peers are venturing into new grounds, like Bollywood and Tollywood, Vijay is content doing Tamil films. He simply says, “Only if I am comfortable with a language, will I be able to perform.” With a strict no-no to direction, Vijay sure is moving in the right direction.
