Vada Chennai Will be an Emotional Comeback for Daniel Balaji
The long pending project Vada Chennai for Dhanush and Vetrimaran has resumed its pace and the latest addition to the cast is Amala Paul. Daniel Balaji who is a close associate to Dhanush and Vetrimaran is doing a pivotal role in Vada Chennai. Recently, he shared his thoughts about his character in the movie and association with Dhanush and Vetrimaran in a very emotional way.
His own words:
“Vada Chennai is going on perfectly. When I began the film, people asked me if it is something like Gangs of Wasseypur (GoW). But I would like to say that although the film (GoW) is released, Vada Chennai was conceptualized during the Polladhavan times itself. I know the story for 8 long years. A story would have been narrated in GoW, but in Vada Chennai, the detailing is immense.
I have begun shooting for the film, which is happening in a jail set erected. When you enter the sets, you will automatically get the feel of being in a jail. When you touch the door, you won’t get the feel of touching something plastic which happens in normal sets in other films. Here, they have done in solid iron to exactly get the feel.
There are around 10-12 major characters in the film. I play one of the gangsters, but I have an emotional story throughout. When other gangsters would be involved in a power play, mine would be an emotional one.”
