Sources close to the actor say that in order to put to use his flying capabilities, he is said to be toying with the idea of procuring a helicopter for his personal use.
In order to secure a new chopper for his own ues, ‘Thala’ is said to have asked for and received quotatios for the purchase of the chopper from a Company by name Global Vectra, a leader in the production of helicopters. The kind of chopper Ajith has asked for can comfortably seat upto 5 persons, it is reported.
Unconfirmed sources say that the chopper is likely to be used by Ajith in his upcoming film ‘Billa-2’, a sequel to his successful ‘Billa’. As Ajith is in the process of winding up the shooting of his landmark 50th film ‘Mankatha’, the talk about what could be his next film has gathered some heat.
It is strongly rumoured that ‘Jayam’ Raja, who is presently making ‘Velayudham’ with Vijay in the lead, is likely to direct Ajith in his next film. It is also said that the script narrated by Raja to Ajith has highly impressed the latter!
