Nalan Kumarasamy denies scripting Bala's next
The director is known for his dark comedies like Soodhu Kavvum and Kadhalum Kadandhu Pogum
Fresh from the success of Naachiyaar, director Bala is busy with Varma -- the Tamil remake of the Telugu hit Arjun Reddy. But the internet went into a frenzy yesterday when several websites stated that the groundwork for his next after Varma has commenced already. The sites went on to say that director Nalan Kumarasamy of Soodhu Kavvum fame and Aaranya Kaandam's director Thiagarajan Kumararaja were coming together to pen the story for Bala's next.
But when CE contacted Nalan Kumarasamy, he brushed it off as rumours. He said, "I went for the discussion of Tharai Thappattai, and post the release of that film, both Thiagarajan and I worked on a script two years ago. But that didn't materialise. I was even contacted asking if I had a hand in the script of Naachiyaar, but that's not true either."
Interestingly, Bala has roped in director Raju Murugan of Joker fame to handle the dialogues for Varma, which marks the debut of Vikram's son Dhruv.
