Is there any film director who doesn't want to make a film with big stars? Yes, there is! Vinayan, one of the noted film directors in South, says that he does not like directing top actors since he may need to compromise with the script to suit to their tastes and mass appeal.
"I am comfortable and content in making films with new faces," he said while talking about his next Tamil venture, Nalai Namadhae, which is being produced by Jose Mavali on behalf of Jana Seva, an orphanage in Kerala. This movie also features two newcomers, Ram and Tanusha, in the lead. The proceeds from this movie would be utilized for maintaining the orphanage.
"My passion is to make such films not accepted by others. Directing films with super stars is like living in a cage. There will be restrictions and methods for directing such films. It is easy for me to do films in my own independent way," he added.
Interestingly, Vinayan, who had directed Kollywood movies like Kasi, En Manava Vanil and Arputha Theevu, started his career with Super Star, in which he used a Mohanlal look-alike in the lead role. His earlier venture, Albhutha Dweep earned a Guinness Book entry for featuring 350 dwarfs in the movie (including the male lead Ajayan) - ranging between 2.5 ft and 3.5 ft in height.
