Bala is no stranger to the
film industry. Having a director father and cinematographer
brother in the family, he learnt the nuances of the film
industry and has perfected the requirements of a good actor.
His father Jayakumar is a famous director who directed over
350 movies and documentaries, while brother Sivakumar worked
in several films including 'Manasellam' and his grandfather
A.K.Velan owns the Arunachala studio.
Yet Bala has been acting in other directors films. Says the
actor, "When I act in other directors films I will be more
responsible and learn more things. Also my Dad is currently
into more of art and short films, whereas I want to act in
commercial films right now.
