13B has turned out to be a successful outing for its director Vikram K Kumar. If the reviews have been favorable at most of the place, box office returns have been encouraging as well. Meanwhile, last 10 days have been quite hectic in the life of this accomplished film maker who has been approached by quite a few production houses ever since the release of his supernatural thriller.
''It has indeed been exciting times for me. Response to 13B has gladdened me since the movie is already a big hit in Tamil while in Hindi too audiences are waking up to the film with every passing day. Meanwhile, for me personally, it's a big win since it has set a platform for me to narrate many more interesting stories in years to come'', says Vikram with a glee on his face.
How has Bollywood been treating him ever since 13B threw a pleasant surprise by being one of the most 'hatke' experiences as far as a thriller is concerned?
''I couldn't have been happier'', says Vikram, ''I have been approached by a lot of production houses and it feels good when you meet them and realize that they really like you as a film maker. At the end of the day, you may have brilliant ideas up your sleeves but then you need someone to fund you. Now after the release and success of 13B, I can promise many more engaging stories.''
Which are these production houses?
''It won't be right for me to name them till I sign on the dotted line. But as I said, the response has been overwhelming. We are in a preliminary stage right now but I am looking at letting this week go by and take some rest. Then over the weekend, let me decide on what I want to make next. I deserve some breathing space after the delivery of my twin babies'', smiles Vikram whose Tamil and Hindi version of 13B released on the same Friday.
