Chiyaan Vikram, who returned to Bollywood with bilingual David, says he is in no hurry to do Hindi films and has not taken these Bollywood projects for money. The actor, who has also acted in Telugu and Malayalam films, made his Bollywood debut in Mani Ratnam's Ravan.
"I already have a career here. It is just that an offer came for Hindi films, I found it interesting and hence took it up. It is not that I am not doing Bollywood films for money or my passion towards acting. Rather I am getting paid same here," Vikram told PTI.
He claimed, "I wanted to do something different in Bollywood and both Raavan and David gave me that opportunity. It is true that the reach of Hindi film industry is wider, it reaches out globally. But that is not the reason for me to do a film there."
"I am not in a hurry to do Hindi films. I was waiting for an interesting and challenging roles to come my way. I am happy that the films like Raavan and David came my way. Before signing a film I look for a good script and good role," Tamil actor said. Continue reading on the slideshow...

He further adds, "All my Tamil films take one to two years. I like to take my time on my projects. I did not want to enter Hindi film industry till I was ready."
Vikram's Tamil films like Sethu was remade in Hindi as Tere Naam with Salman Khan in the lead and now his another hit film Saamy is being made in Hindi as Policegiri with Sanjay Dutt and Prachi Desai in the lead roles.
"I am happy that these films are getting remade here. It is a good thing," he said.
