Ajith, Venkat Prabhu, Boney Kapoor to come together for Mankatha 2

Though there have been talks about Mankatha 2 ever since Mankatha became a blockbuster, nothing is official so far. However now, there seem to be developments on this front.

According to reports, producer Boney Kapoor had approached director Venkat Prabhu to helm the Tamil remake of Badhaai Ho as he has bought the remake rights of this hit Hindi film.

And at that time, Venkat mentioned that he is ready with Mankatha 2 as well. It is to be noted that Kapoor, who had bankrolled Ajith’s Nerkonda Paarvai, is now producing the actor’s next film, tentatively titled Thala 60. Both films are directed by H Vinoth.

Since the producer would make one more film with Ajith as part of three-movie deal, it is said the project would be Mankatha 2. It is to be noted that Mankatha is the 50th flick of Ajith.

The film that had a rocking music score by Yuvan Shankar Raja comprised of an ensemble cast that includes Arjun, Trisha, Laxmi Raai, Vaibav, Anjali and Premgi Amaran.

Earlier this year, Arjun Sarja, while speaking at a promo event, revealed that Ajith had plans to make the second part of Mankatha eight years ago and told him a one-line story of the film too.

“Immediately after the release of Mankatha, Ajith told me a one-liner of Mankatha 2. He has the story ready in his mind. I don’t know if I’ll be a part of the film. That’s a decision the director has to take. I’m not sure if the film will materialise any time soon,” Arjun said.
