Director Vikram K Kumar who is known for his works in films like Yaavarum Nalam, Manam, 24, made his debut with the Simbu - Trisha starrer Alai. The film got mixed to negative reviews and it didn't give a bang-on start for Vikram. However, in the next six years, he bounced back strongly with the supernatural thriller, Yaavarum Nalam, that was widely appreciated and managed to turn out successful at the box office as well. In a recent live interaction with Galatta Media, Vikram recollected the memories of how he had to deal with the failure of Alai and bounce back with his next film.

He said, “Honestly, Alai was a bad film. There was no other way to talk about the movie. I was out of work due to that film. No producer or actor wanted to work with me during that time. It was a difficult time, but I did write and constantly approach people for projects.

Yaavarum Nalam was a script that I wrote during that time and Maddy was there for me. He was a close friend and he agreed to act in the film after listening to the story and then the film materialized. But the six years between Alai and Yaavarum Nalam taught me a lot of things.” Currently, Vikram K Kumar is busy with the pre-production works of his next film, that will star Naga Chaitanya in the lead role. This untitled new project is said to be produced by Dil Raju’s Sri Venkateswara Creations.

Vikram K Kumar is also in talks with Suriya for a possible project in Tamil. Looks like exciting days are ahead for the 24 director! Check out his FB live interaction video below:
