After the super hit Viswasam, Ajith is currently shooting for his 59th film, which is a remake of Hindi hit Pink, at Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad.
The latest update is that he has won the hearts of crews of other films that are currently being shot in RFC. According to sources, he went to the sets of Priyadarshan-Mohanlal’s Kunjali Marakkar.
Also, Ajith is said to have also visited the sets of Prabhas’ upcoming magnum opus Saaho. “Ajith and Prabhas had a long conversation but as Saaho team wants to maintain the secrecy of the sets, they decided not to post any pics on social media,” sources say.
Shraddha Srinath of Vikram Vedha fame has been roped in to play a key role in the film, directed by Vinoth. Confirming the development, producer Boney Kapoor said, “Shraddha has been cast in a pivotal role; she is a very promising actress. We are also excited about introducing Vidya Balan to the Tamil audience; she is paired with Ajith and her role is a very special one.”
For her part, Shraddha said, “There were two rounds of auditions and only after that did they sign me on. The whole process took a little over a month I guess. I’ll soon start shooting with the team.”
Pink remake will hit the screens on May 1, 2019, while the 60th film of Ajith will be released on April 10, 2020. Boney Kapoor said in a statemenet that he is planning to produce one more film in July 2019 with Thala Ajith but the director name wasn’t revealed.
Meanwhile, some sources say based on his working experience with Vinoth, Ajith will decide whether to retain him for the second project with Boney Kapoor or not. Ajith’s lucky charm Yuvan Shankar Raja is composing the music for the Tamil remake of Pink and Nirav Shah is cranking the camera.
