Famous yesteryear actress, dancer and former MP Vyjyanthimala strongly criticized the trend if remaking films in Kollywood. She commented on it saying that it is better to leave old classics the way they were made originally. She commented further, "It is a totally useless effort to remake films originally made by others. It is not possible to bring in the same elegance and style that is there in the orignal film when one remakes a film. Can one remake of the classic Hindi film Madumathi or the Tamil Film Vanchikottai Vaaliban?'
Yesterday she met the media at her residence on the eve of the release of Ninaithale, a film in which her son Suchindra Bali aka Sucin is playing the lead role. She said that she is not interested in doing anymore films. She went on, "I am all support for my son Sucin (Suchindra Bali). He has completed his Masters Degree in Law and practicing in court. He is also looking after the business. Despite paying attention to these things, he also wants to do films. His first few movies were not successes. It is only now, after six years that he is getting the right kind of projects. For an artist like me, directors are the real heroes of a film. They know the skills of an artist best. They know how to utilize an artists skill as the script requires."
Her son Suchindra Bali alias Sucin made his debut in Tamil films in Kannodu Kanbathellam with Arjun in 1999. The film didn't do well at the Box office. He also shared the screen with Ajith in his second film Mughavari. After these two films, he found it was difficult to find a place in Kollywood. Six years later (now), he has made a comeback with the film Ninaithale. The film is directed and produced by Viswas Sundar.
