He made his debut in Tamil with Anbu, but today Bala is creating waves in Malayalam.
His projects in Malayalam include Boot, directed by Shaji Kailash. Honey Rose and Lakshana are his leading ladies in the film. He is also acting in SMS directed by Sarjulin opposite Navya Nair with music composed by Maestro Ilayaraja.
But Bala has not restricted himself to the usual run-of-the-mill roles. In Omkaaran, he plays a deaf and dumb character, while in Pramod-Pappan's Musafir, his role has shades of grey. Sexy Reema Sen is expected to be cast as the heroine of Musafir, which will be shot in the beautiful locales of Dubai and Singapore.
He is also doing a film called Suspense, directed by Viji Thambi. Lakshmi Sharma is the heroine. Viji made his directorial debut with Mammootty.
Bala is also discussing another Malayalam film with director Vinayan. In Tamil, his next release is Manjal Veyil directed by K.S. Adhiyaman.
