Though it’s not yet confirmed, reports emanating from Kollywood in the past two days have been harping on the remote possibility of top star Ajith and Vijay coming together after more than a decade to star in the remake of the super-duper hit film Ninaithalae Inikkum which had the legendary combo of superstar Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan playing the lead roles.
Directed by K. Balachander, who is a mentor of both Rajini and Kamal, Ninaithalae Inikkum was a music hit with mesmerizing numbers by ‘Mellisai Mannar’ Viswanathan. The songs in the film are heard with rapt attention even after almost 3 decades of the release of the film. It is said that the ‘dream’ combo of Ajith and Vijay might come together to star in this film’s remake.
In their early years in the late nineties, Vijay and Ajith have starred together in a few films. Now that both of them have their respective huge fan base, it remains to be seen whether they’d agree to star together again. It was reported that Selvaa, who has made many remake films to his credit, would be the director of the film. It may be recalled by viewers that it was Selvaa who introduced Ajith to Tamil films through Amaravathy.
While Vijay specializes in starring in the remake of popular Telugu films in Tamil, Ajith hasn’t done many remakes. Speaking about the rumour, Selvaa says “As of now, I don’t have any plans to remake Ninaithalae Inikkum in Tamil. As such, the question of Ajith and Vijay coming together to star in the film doesn’t exist at all. In m view, the Rajini-Kamal starrer is a ‘classic’ film and it may not be remade again by any director!”
