Reports say that actor Ajith’s upcoming film ‘Mankatha’ would be released in as many as 70 screens in the United States which has a huge population of Indian origin. For the first time in the actor’s career, a film of his would be released in this much number of screens in U.S.
Venkat Prabhu has directed ‘Mankatha’ which has been produced by Dayanidhi’s Cloud Nine Movies. The film has a huge star cast in ‘action king’ Arjun, Trisha, Lakshmi Rai, Andrea Jermaiah, Anjali, Kainaat Arora and Prem G Amaren. Said to be based on the ‘cricket betting’ scam which rocked the country a few years back, the film is awaited eagerly by Ajith’s fans as it’s also the 50th film in his career.
Ajith’s character and looks are discussed with great hope by his fans. For the first time, the actor is said to be playing a full-length character with gray shades. The release and distribution of the film has been taken over by Sun Pictures, in association with Udhayanidhi’s Red Giant Movies and Dayanidhi. It is now heard that actress Radhika’s Radaan Network has also jumped into the fray.
Radaan, it is said, would be releasing the film in U.S. in as many as 70 screens. Though it is assured by the makers that the film would be hitting the screens on 31st August as planned earlier, a degree of uncertainty is definitely hanging around it.
