Since making his acting debut two decades ago, Tamil superstar Vikram has done more path-breaking work than any of his colleagues. After doing blockbusters including Sethu, Dhill, Gemini and Dhool and winning a national award for the role in Pithamagan, Vikram is all set to make his Hindi film debut with Mani Ratnam’s Raavan. He spoke to Subhash K Jha:

.

Are you looking forward to your entry into Hindi cinema?

The work in Mumbai is so exciting. When i saw Rang De Basanti, Lagaan, 3 Idiots and My Name Is Khan, i wanted to be part of them. I wish we could make films like that in Tamil. Most Tamil films are rustic, rural, rugged and violent. Many of them are set in Madurai, which is known to be an aggressive city.

.

How does it feel to be at the top in Tamil cinema for so long?

I always behave as though every film of mine is the first. And i try doing something different each time. It’s like chess for me. I’ve done very few films. By the time i release one film, my contemporaries complete and release four films. In the year that i had Aparachit, Vijay had six films and Ajith had four.
