Today December 8th is being celebrated as the 100th day of Ajith’s 2011 super grosser Manaktha. The movie released on August 31st 2011 made its way to a total 300 halls in the state alone creating new records week-in and week-out. It did considerably well in the overseas market too with news of the Mankatha effect sweeping the Malaysia-Singapore regions grabbing headlines.
The movie which saw hero Ajith sporting a George Clooney look had a huge star list to boast off. If the ladies section was jam packed with hotties in Trisha, Anjali and Lakshmi Rai the men weren’t far behind with ‘Action King’ Arjun , Premji Amaren, Mahat Ragavendra and of course our Thala himself leading the star pack. Amidst the news of the flick going for the Bollywood remake rounds, Mankatha will also be remembered for being a bold move from the man himself playing a a charachter with grey shades. Moreover Ajith publicly announced the disbanding of all his fan clubs before the release of the flick – a step no other actor would dare to take. True to his style Ajith has stayed from any big celebrations on the day of his centurion run, being presently involved with his Billa 2 engagement. Mankatha distributor Sun Pictures thanked fans saying “Mankatha celebrates 100th day today. Thank you everyone for making it a grand success. A ‘Thala’ film , a proud moment for Sun Pictures & Cloud9.” Mankatha lady Trisha too sent out her love saying, “ Wow its been 100 days already…Congrats team Mankatha…”
Machi ! Open the bottles (a 100 this time) !!!!
