Ilayathalapathy Vijay expressed his desire to work with one of the leading directors Bala. The actor commented that he would love to work with him. But director Bala feels that he is not someone who is special. Director Bala says, “I don’t understand actors claiming they would reach top slot after acting in my direction. I only guide them for the perfection of a characterization and leave behind the unwanted traits in and I believe that makes an actor ideal.”
Bala has just completed "Paradesi" ready to hit the screens on March 15th. He has directed many star heroes like Vikram, Surya, Arya and Vishal which have all been hit. "Paradesi" starring Adharva, Dhansika and Vedhika revolves around real life incidents that took place before independence
Vijay is busy with "Thalaivaa" opposite Amala Paul; the movie is being directed by A L Vijay and music composed by G V Prakash Kumar.
