Ever since there was an announcement that Boney Kapoor would produce the 59th and 60th films of Ajith, there is a buzz that Vinoth, who is directing ‘Thala-59’, will helm the actor’s 60th film too.
“While Vinoth will remake Bollywood hit Pink as Ajith’s 59th film, he will direct the thala for his own script and this will be the actor’s 60th movie,” sources say.
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.
“While working with Ajith in ‘English Vinglish’, Sridevi had expressed her desire that Ajith does a Tamil film for our home production. Nothing exciting came up till one day last year; Ajith suggested remaking ‘Pink’ in Tamil. She immediately agreed as she thought it was most appropriate and timely film to make and Ajith would bring all the elements required to make it into a great Tamil film,” Kapoor said in a statement.
“Tamil industry has always been special for me. In fact, it’s been a long journey involving Ajith to collaborate for a film, which he took up as a sheer commitment from the time he shared screen space with my wife in English Vinglish’. Accordingly, what we both earnestly searched for suitable content that will add a special mileage to our respective works. We are now delighted to have joined hands for Pink’,” he added.
“We hope to bring the remake of Pink’ to theatres on May 1, 2019. We are subsequently doing another film together and that will be scheduled to go on the floors in July 2019 and will be released on the April 10th, 2020,” he said.
