Vikram Kumar is probably the director who makes the most intelligent films in Tollywood. Although he has done films in Tamil and Hindi too, he is still recognized as a Telugu director for having made most of his films in the Telugu film industry.
The ideas behind his films are so out of the box that they more often than not don’t work in B,C centres, and results in commercial unviability (ex: 24 and Hello). Had he been working in Bollywood, he would have become a standalone brand by now. In fact, he first came into limelight with the runaway Bollywood hit, his only Hindi film till date, “13B”, a well made horror film.
If things fall in place, this talented director will next make a Bollyood film, that too featuring top Bollywood hero Akshay Kumar. It is heard that Vikram Kumar had narrated a story to Akshay and got his nod. Like all his films, this one also deals with an unorthodox subject. The project is likely to go on floors in the second half of this year.
Akshay is currently busy with other projects, and by the time he wraps up them, Vikram plans to be ready with to take off.
Vikram has also committed a film with Nani, it needs to be seen when this project will materialize.
