“When we began Villain, Ajith said he wanted to do a double role where one character would show off his acting skills and the other would be the commercial action hero. With Aasal, he combines both in one character,” reveals Yugi Sethu, screenwriter of Aasal. What Ajith fans expect from the actor is a lot of action, which Aasal gives scope for. But the added asset of the movie is the emotional quotient as well.
“In terms of story and theme, it combines the commercial elements of an MGR movie and the emotional elements of a Sivaji Ganesan movie. Whether you are a diehard Ajith fan or not, you will enjoy the movie because it has something for everybody. And Ajith has done an excellent job. He knows what his fans want, and hence his input in the writing and making process have only bettered the film,” adds Yugi, who has acted in Aasal after a ten-year break from acting.
