It is learnt through sources that Sathya Jyothi Films, which had bankrolled Vivegam, will be producing Veeram 2 as well.
Director Siva and Ajith may go on to team up again. According to the buzz, the director is working on a script which is most likely to be a sequel to Veeram. Siva first directed Ajith in Veeram, which was a massive hit and then wielded the megaphone for two other Ajith starrers Vedhalam and Vivegam.
Reports indicate that the duo is comfortable working together and considering the grand box office success of Veeram, they intend to go ahead with a sequel for it. It is learnt through sources that Sathya Jyothi Films, which had bankrolled Vivegam, will be producing Veeram 2 as well.
Veeram was a village-based subject and its sequel will also be on the same lines. The film had Tammannah pairing up with Ajith. Those in the supporting cast included Vidharth, Bala, Vidyullekha Raman, Santhanam and Nassar. Devi Sri Prasad has composed tunes for Veeram with Vetri cranking the camera and Kasi Viswanathan editing it.
Ever since Vivegam hit the marquee, there have been reports that Siva and Ajith would collaborate for the fourth time. However, there is no official word on it from either side till now. Ajith, according to sources, will be taking a break till January and decide on his next in 2018. There is a strong possibility of an official word about Veeram 2 coming up next year.
Interestingly, if this happens, it would be the first time Ajith is collaborating with a director for the fourth time. And more importantly, the film’s title will begin with V, which would be apt for sentimental reasons.
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.
Ajith’s super hit film ‘Amarkalam’ has been digitally restored and the restored version was supposed to release on Ajith’s birthday (May 1) this year. However, the movie did not release as planned due to unavoidable circumstances. The latest news that would make Ajith fans happy is that the movie will be hitting the screens on May 16th. An official announcement is expected to be made soon.
Directed by Saran, the movie has music by Bharadwaj. Incidentally, it is during the shooting of this film, Ajith and Shalini fell in love and got married later. Get ready to celebrate the cult classic again!
Director Gautham Menon has reportedly called off the shooting of the Ajith starrer that he has been directing. When enquired, sources said that the director is planning to erect a grand set to film the portions involving the lead pair Ajith and Anushka as it is impossible for him to can scenes with them in outdoor locations.
As soon as the sets are erected, the shooting will go on full swing. In the mean time, Gautham and music director are working on the tunes for the film and the director has announced that he would be having six songs in the film.
Director Sundar C’s wife and actress Kushbhoo has hinted on a micro blogging site that her husband may soon direct Ajith. The duo had worked together in Unnai Thedi way back in 1999, it may be mentioned here.
Sundar C is currently directing Aranmanai in which he is playing the lead role as well and Ajith is busy with Gautham Menon’s film. There were reports that Sundar C had narrated a story to Ajith some months ago and the star did like it very much. Sources say that as soon as the two complete their respective projects, they may join hands together.
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.
Director Gautham Menon had approached Trisha to play a significant role in Ajith’s 55th film but the actress declined the offer. When enquired about this, we came to know that this particular role had shades of grey and Trisha was not too happy to turn a baddie at this stage.
Amy Jackson is also reported to have turned down this offer for this reason and eventually it was Dhansika, who was seen in Peraanmai and Manja Velu, has been signed up. Interestingly, Arun Vijay, Dhansika’s hero in Maanja Velu is also included in the star cast of this film.
Harris Jayaraj is thrilled over being reunited with his best buddy Gautham Menon. The duo have given some of the best songs ever through their association in six films until they parted ways.
Now, back together for Ajith 55, Harris has said that he is excited to score the music for a musical action thriller. We also hear that there will be six songs in the album and Harris is planning to try out something very unique for this genre. The shooting is progressing at a breakneck speed in Hyderabad and Harris is raring to start the work from his end.
Though Anushka is quite proficient in Tamil, she has never dubbed for any of the films till now. But the actress is set on doing it for the first time for Ajith’s 55.
Sources in the know say that director Gautham Menon wants the actress to use her own voice for this film and she is very keen on doing the same. It would indeed be a special treat for all her fans, more so because she is pairing up with Ajith for the first time. The shooting of this film started last week and it is too early to speculate on such things, adds sources.
Trade sources are buzzing with the news that Ajith’s 55th movie will have Anushka and Trisha in the lead! Gautham Menon seems to have managed to pull it off finally! What makes this project even more interesting is the fact that it will have Harris Jayaraj scoring the music.
There have been a lot of speculations over the music director but it looks like Gautham and Harris have ironed out their differences to come together for this biggie. We also hear that the shooting of this yet to be titled movie will begin on April 9th in Hyderabad. Watch this space for more updates!
