Vijaykanth- Desperate for a hit?

Last Updated: Thu, Dec 16, 2004 06:42 hrs

Is Vijaykanth losing his pull at the box-office and hold in the industry? His Niranja Manasu is a disaster of epic proportion as the film did not even run in his stronghold areas of Madurai and Salem.

Meanwhile his vice like grip over Nadigar Sangam is slowly slipping and questions are being asked about the way he is running the organisation. The buzz is that DMK and ADMK supporters in the industry are unhappy about the affairs of the artist association.

However, the December 29 elections will decide who the new president of Nadigar Sangam will be and it is a crucial for the actor if he can improve his position in the industry. But now the star in Vijaykanth is desperate for a hit which can boost his sagging career. Along with producer Kaja Moideen, Vijaykanth has announced a new film titled Perarasu to be directed by Udayan, a newcomer.

Vijaykanth has abandoned the rural milieu and is now doing an all out action entertainer in which he is once again donning the role of a police officer. After Vallarasu he has not done police officer roles and remember that such roles have always clicked with the masses in the past.

Will Perarasu salvage his sagging career and bring back the old glory? Watch this space.
