This isn’t something new to boast about. Almost every superstar in their earlier days has shared screen spaces together. Possibly, these films perpetually remain under spotlights for the substantial tales and powerful characterizations of those actors.
Be it Hindi Film Industry’s ‘Sholay’ (Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra) and Tamil film industry’s ‘Ninaithale Inikkum’ (Rajnikanth and Kamal Haasan). Off the late, the following cohorts followed by the same trend in tinsel town.
‘Ilayathalapathy’ Vijay and stylish icon Ajith Kumar were offered to perform lead roles in Manirathnam’s production ‘Nerukku Naer’ directed by Vasanth. At the last moment, Surya replaced Ajith Kumar thereby making his onscreen debut. The same duo combo came back with a big gold strike in family entertainer ‘Friends’.
Similarly, Amitabh Bachchan’s home production ‘Ullasam’ featured Ajith Kumar and Vikram in lead role. Years later, director Bala roped in Vikram and Surya together in his magnum opus ‘Pithamagan’. And now, we’ve the same moviemaker signing Aarya and Vishal in his upcoming film ‘Avan Ivan’. Of course, Aarya has been favoring multi-starrer projects as most of his films have been off that sort. Be his debut film ‘Ullam Ketkume’ with Shaam or the following film ‘Pattiyal’ with Bharath: he carved a niche for himself with his role in spite of being a part of double-hero subjects.
Actor Madhavan strongly believes in the mantra of success with multi-starrer films. Indeed, this has paved him a big ticket in Bollywood. It has been completely illustrious with his ‘3 Idiots’ and ‘Teen Patti’, in which he shares screen space with Ben Kingsley and Amitabh Bachchan.
Let’s hope the young stars keep striving on similar motifs of promoting double or multi-starrer projects, which would manifestly result in big changeover from existing patterns of films.
