RJ Balaji is all smiles, following the success of the crime-comedy Vadacurry. Despite being one of the celebrated RJs in the recent times and more recently finding success as an actor, Balaji is not in a hurry to prove his mettle as an actor and adds that he is careful while choosing his roles.

“I have been getting offers to act, but I am extremely careful while choosing those because I should not bore the audience with my constant onscreen presence. Previously, directors used to approach me after listening to my crosstalk show, but now slowly it’s changing. They approach me after watching my roles in films,” says Balaji.

And he doesn’t fail to surprise you with the revelation that he never planned to be an actor. “I would like to experiment with my acting skills, but I never wanted to be an actor; it was accidental,” says Balaji, who made his full-fledged acting debut in Theeya Velai Seiyyanum Kumaru last year.

Balaji admits that social media has played a major role in his success. “Listeners are so kind that they upload links to my shows on their Facebook pages. In fact, they hail my success as theirs and that is motivating,” he says. 

The funnyman has finished the two-day shoot for Vishnuvardan’s next film. “We shot in Chennai. I can’t reveal the kind of role I am doing in the film. But, it’s an interesting one. I had signed it even before Vadacurry. I don’t want to do too many films. I follow this ‘wait and watch’ policy to see how the audiences are reacting to my films. I feel would be a better way to gauge myself,” says Balaji.
