Emulating papa

A FLUTTER on the sets of Youth starring Vijay was caused by the Ilai Dhalapati taking his place behind the camera and wielding the megaphone during the post-lunch session of shooting.

Everyone wondered why he was taking over from director Selva.

But before hasty conclusions could be made, director Vincent Selva himself explained that Vijay had met him and discussed the way he had visualised the post-lunch session.

Impressed by the actor's enthusiasm, Selva had asked him to go ahead and direct the shots if he wished, saying that he would step in if any problems arose.

The excited actor said that he had not found it difficult to act and direct.

He added that maybe next year he might produce, direct and star in a film! What's with those directorial genes?
