Ajith has been following one policy strictly after some very bad experiences he tasted during the making of Kreedom, say sources. When enquired about it, we came to know that the star never allots call sheets to corporate companies.
It is said that Ajith always prefers to work with individual producers; especially those he is comfortable working with. The star also makes sure that people close to him are benefitted by his call sheet. It is for this reason, the Thala had allotted call sheet to his favourite producer AM Rathnam twice within a very short duration.

If you are wondering what could be the common factor between Superstar Rajinikanth’s ‘Kochadaiyaan’, Vijay’s ‘Kaththi’ and Ajith’s 55th film, the answer is EROS International. Yes, according to reliable sources, EROS has bagged the distribution rights of ‘Kaththi’, directed by AR Murugadoss and ‘Ajith 55′, directed by Gautham Menon. It is worth mentioning that they have already bagged the rights of Soundarya R Ashwin’s debut venture ‘Kochadaiyaan’.
While ‘Kochadaiyaan’ is all set to hit the screens on May 9th, ‘Kaththi’ will be hitting the screens for Diwali this year. The release date of ‘Ajith 55′ is yet to be announced though.
Balaji Mohan’s second outing Vaayai Moodi Pesavum has been certified with a clean ‘U’ certificate. The film, touted to be a comic caper, has Dulquer Salman and Nazriya as the lead pair. Incidentally, VMP will mark the debut of Dulquer, son of veteran actor Mammootty, in Kollywood.
The promos of this film have attracted the movie buffs in a big way; thanks to the novel strategy adopted by the director. Expectations on VMP is high as Balaji Mohan’s debut Kadhalil Sodhappuvadhu Eppadi was a big hit. The film is now slated for release on April 25th, 2014.

The young musician has said that he is working hard to ensure that this album busts the charts soon after its release and is hopeful that it would happen.
