Director Venkat Prabhu, who gave the memorable super hit Mankatha as the 50th film of Ajith, has called on the actor, triggering speculations that Mankatha 2 is on the pipeline.
Venkat Prabhu took to his micro-blogging page to share a picture with Ajith. He captioned, “And this happened……… gd nt”.
This picture created a huge buzz on social media, with fans questioning the director if Mankatha 2 was on the cards. But there was no explanation about this from the director.
Ajith is currently busy shooting for the Tamil remake of Bollywood hit Pink, which is being directed by H Vinoth, who directed Sathuranga Vettai and Theeran Adigaram Ondru.
The latest update is that he has won the hearts of crews of other films that are currently being shot in Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad. 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.”
