It is strongly rumoured in some sections of the press that Ajith’s upcoming untitled venture would be a multi-starrer on the lines of his landmark 50th film Mankatha which released last year and became a colossal hit. Ajith is presently busy with the post-production work of his upcoming film Billa-2 which has generated widespread curiosity and excitement, thanks to the film’s theatrical trailer and news about Ajith’s ‘daredevil’ helicopter-bound stunt sequences.
Vishnuvardhan, who gave Ajith a stylish look in the 2007 super-hit Billa, is re-uniting with Ajith in this unnamed Tamil-Telugu bilingual film which is being planned now. Ajith is paired opposite Nayanthara while Aarya and Tapasee Pannu would be the other pair in the film which also has the likes of Arvind Swamy and Prithviraj. It now turns out that Tollywood’s Nagarjuna and Ravi Teja would also be part of the film.
Nagarjuna and Ravi Teja are leading heroes in Telugu films and as such, it remains uncertain as to what sort of ‘characters’ have been visualized for them in the Ajith-starrer. The producer is apparently under the impression that the presence of Nag and Teja would help the film do well in Andhra Pradesh. Whether the two senior heroes would agree to play second fiddle to Ajith is also a point of contention.
As the film hasn’t yet gone to floors, it can’t be guessed at present as to who would remain in the film’s final line-up or whether more stars would be added to the film’s cast. The film would be produced by Raghuram under his banner Sri Sathyasai Movies under the supervision of A.M. Rathnam. The muhurat is expected to be held on 31st May in Mumbai.
