He’s currently on a career high with several films up his sleeve, and actor Vidharth is loving every moment of it. The trailer of his movie Aal, directed by Anand Krishna is out and his trendy look and stylish body language in the action thriller is drawing compliments. Another highlight of his career is sharing screen space with Thala Ajith in Siruthai Siva’s film, playing his brother. And Vidharth is on cloud nine, after the experience.
“I’m a big fan of Ajith,” he confesses to CE in a chat. “So, acting with him was a dream come true. But after the shoot, I have become proud of being his fan. I have never seen someone so humane and down-to-earth as him.” Vidharth goes on to relive the experience, “Whenever he met anyone, he would stand up and greet them.When it became too hot, he had fans installed in every room for the workers. Everyday he would knock on my caravan and enquire about my well being, food and comfort. A big star like him needn’t have done that! Even I have two assistants, but he has only one! Rain or sun, he wouldn’t use an umbrella but just put a shirt over his head and proceed. I have never seen any star doing such things and I got very emotional at the end of the shoot.
The one thing I have learnt from him is humility.” Looks like 2013 is going to be a good year for the Mynaa hero. He has a spate of films, with interesting roles. In Venmegham, directed by twins Ram-Lakshman, he plays a painter while in Jannal Oram, directed by Karun Palaniappan, he’s a watchman. In Ula, directed by Rajan Madhav, he plays a rowdy gang leader while in Meera Kadiravan’s Vizhithiru he’s a thief.
Director SP Rajkumar has the actor playing a bus driver in Pattaya Kalappanum Pandiya. Vidharth is happy the way things are going, despite the slow run rate post Mynaa.
“I never went searching for work. People chose me for my acting after Mynaa showcased my skills. So far, I have no regrets. Success or failure doesn’t affect me. But if someone says I’m not a good actor, that would be cause for concern and make me work harder. At the end of the day, doing justice to each character is my priority!” concludes Vidharth.
