Thala Ajith has had a long history of successful double-role and multi-role flicks and memorable films such as Vaali, Citizen, Villain, Varalaru and Billa are shining examples of the star's prowess at pulling off such roles with ease.
His upcoming movie with Gautham Menon also looks like a probable addition to Ajith's illustrious double-role films. The film's shoots recently happened in the outskirts of Chennai along the OMR (Old Mahabalipuram Road) and a little birdie at the location was heard saying that the star was playing dual roles - that of a policeman and also the villain in the film.
The film's shoots are mostly being done at night in Chennai and 2 schedules have already been completed. Ajith is currently sporting his natural gray hair and a neat crew cut. We have to see if he would go for another look, if he is indeed playing a dual role as speculated.
We will keep you posted.
Actress Nayanthara is one of the most sought-after heroines in the southern film industries and she was worked with almost all the leading stars including Superstar Rajinikanth, Vijay and Ajith. However, she has also had her share of controversies, as she was in a couple of relationships with Simbu and Prabhu Deva, but none of them lasted long. Inspired by Nayanthara’s personal life, a Tamil writer named Siva Raman had approached her to write a biography on her life.
However, Nayanthara has rejected the offer made by the writer. Nayanthara is currently busy with films like Ithu Namma Aalu, Thani Oruvan and Nanbenda.
Superstar Rajinikanth has wished the DMK Chief and the former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, M Karunanidhi, who is celebrating his 91st birthday today.

It is worth mentioning that Supertar Rajinikanth shares a good rapport with the DMK supremo. Our sources also reveal that ace lyricist Vairamuthu has also wished the veteran politician on his special day.

Explaining further, Tamannah said that though she has had several opportunities in the past to fall in love, she avoided it just to ensure her career remains her priority, at least for now.
Prakash Raj is controversy’s favourite child! A very talented actor that he is, Prakash Raj has also had an equal share when controversies are concerned; be it the tiff with an assistant director in Tollywood, due to which a one-year ban was imposed on him, which was later revoked, or the alleged brawl in a flight recently.
However, Prakash Raj is not perturbed by all this, as he is set on concentrating on his work. The multitalented actor states that he has worked in over 300 movies so far, which proves that people are comfortable working with him.
