Ajith’s penchant for grey – Bangalore Mirror

The actor asked to play the role in Mankatha because of his obsession for characters that are not your average man-next-door

The filmi-grapevine in Chennai says that Mankatha, directed by Venkat Prabhu with Ajith in the lead, is being delayed for political reasons. The film is produced by Dayanidhi Azhagiri, grandson of Karunanidhi, former CM of Tamilnadu. Venkat Prabhu dismisses the rumour as a figment of imagination! “I don’t deny that there were a few teething problems, but all is well now and we are busy burning midnight oil to release the movie at the earliest,” he says.

Initially when the film was planned, Ajith was not even thought of, says Venkat. “On learning that I was due to commence a new project, Ajith called me to congratulate me and mentioned that he’d be interested in working with me in case I am conceiving a theme in which there is a grey and different character. Without hesitation, I said that there was such a character in the project and he said he’d do that role. Now, I was in a spot as I had to revisit the draft of my script so as to create areas that would accommodate the star that he is! That character developed further and as we commenced the schedules, it grew bigger and better.”

The film is about a couple of bad guys wanting to earn a few quick bucks and Ajith, an extremely “bad guy” joins the gang. Trisha, Lakshmi Rai and Anjali are the heroines of the film. Ajith’s salt ‘n’ pepper look in the film has become a talking point. The film’s music is composed by Venkat’s cousin and maestro Illayaraja’s son Yuvan Shankar Raja. And yes, there is an item number too!

    hi thala iam die hard fan of yours iam having some dissatisfaction on your style of restriction with public,fans,media,director,politics . seriously thala if you do that in this media then you may not shine more as super star….

    Media
    pls promote your film,you are the one should be producer pet.you are saying no good film require promotion that is old style.people create expecation and with one week of time producer earn there money.if you think that u are cheating the public by this it is wrong.you should have confident in you by selecting good director and story.

    Fans

    What you done for your fan????
    at least a photos
    even though u have given flops and hit people are behind you with out any expectation.What you done for your fan????

    Race
    its a high time to concentrate on that

    politics
    if ranikanth to ajith avoid politics then where will india goes only to wrong.

    public

    attend the public functiion like star fuction,ads,promos.you may got a bitter situation in one function but keeping that in my mind dont try restrict your self…

    director

    pls dont give opputunity becase of sympathy or some thing else….. give important to murugadass,gautham,mani sif,kk ravi sir.i not saying not to give chance to new director… seeing there is lot of money involve in your movie sure hit is a must.you can say i have done my work rest people will take care….then what about your producer……

    pls mingle with all people,dont restrict your self .world is big.even superstar have told ininterview about you that if i would have gave this much of flop, i would have thrown out of the industry but ajith is lucky…… see we are even for your failure thisnk about that when u take any dicision….

    even i can go least bother about u.but i can be like u.because we like you…..take my words sir after some stage u may not feel that i have not done any thing to my fan……

    what ever is there in my heart i told you rest your wish….i dont think so you never require a suggesion…..
