Stalwart producer K C Bokadia to make a Tamil film

Popular Bollywood producer KC Bokadia is all set to make a comeback in Tamil films. Having bankrolled several blockbusters across Indian languages, Bokadia hails from Chennai. Of 59 films he has produced so far in his banner BMB Productions, Amitabh Bachchan has featured in 11 films, Superstar Rajinikanth in 5, and 18 films with Aamir Khan, Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan. Akshay Kumar has played the lead in 5 films as well. It was Bokadia who gave Rajinikanth the much needed Bollywood entry. He has also directed 38 films in Hindi and has introduced several south Indian filmmakers in Bollywood in the last 2 decades. Now, Bokadia has plunged into production with Tamil and Telugu films in the offing. Recently he met actor Tamizhmani, who is one of the directors of BMB Productions, in Chennai and has discussed in length about foraying into production in south again.
