Don't do two films in the same genre: Tamil director

Chennai, Aug 13 : Director G.N.R Kumaravelan, who made the critically acclaimed Tamil emotional drama "Haridas", feels it's important for a director to avoid repeating a genre. It helps to stay away from being typecast, he says.

After "Haridas", he is gearing up for a high-octane action flick laced with romance.

"I felt 'Haridas' was quite heavy on the audiences, and therefore, I wanted to return with something solid and entertaining. I didn't want to be typecast as a director fit for making emotional dramas (only). I felt it's important to do films in different genres," Kumaravelan told IANS.

"Audiences easily come to a conclusion and decide the fate of a director. I didn't want that to happen. I recently finished writing an out-and-out action script with a romantic angle. I have also managed to find a producer. Now, only casting is left. I intend to start it soon," he added.

While Kumaravelan's directorial debut was Tamil mystery-drama "Ninaithale Inikkum", his second film was Tamil romantic-comedy "Yuvan Yuvathi".

Quizzed about the current trend of rush of comedy flicks in Tamil, he said: "I don't think all films belong to the comedy genre. But, I agree comedy is being effectively used in most films because it guarantees some entertainment".
