50 seem to be the most popular number in Kollywood these days. Universal Star Kamal Haasan’s 50 years in films have taken place; Ilayathalapathy Vijay has announced his 50th film and last but not the least Ultimate Star Ajith has begun the preparation for his 50th film.
The front runner in the director lists was K.S Ravi Kumar. Ajith and K.S have done super hits Villain and Varalaaru and share great rapport. Ravi Kumar already has a solid offer from Ulaganayagan and so the director left Ajith.
The other possible candidates were Venkat Prabhu and his favorite Billa director Vishnuvardhan.
Venkat who has already told a one line to Ajith has waited for call from Ajith’s office. The one line is said to be an action comedy, with all elements to entertain his hardcore fans. But this big budget action entertainer slipped from the hands of Venkat Prabhu.
Leading producer Aascar Ravichandran has pulled back from producing the film. Dhayanidhi Alagiri and his Cloud Nine have showed enthusiasm in producing the flick. Dayanidhi Azhagiri has launched his production outfit Cloud Nine Movies recently with a humor movie.
Ajith is currently working in his 49th venture Asal directed by Saran for Sivaji Productions. Ajith has completed the penultimate schedule of Asal in Hungary.
The Kollywood grapevine is that K.V Anand is going to direct Ajith for his 50th Golden Jubilee film which is to be produced by leading production house, AGS Entertainment.
Ajith met Anand to discuss about the script. Anand is also engaged in doing a film with Surya after the actor had finished Hari’s Singam, Ram Gopal Varma’s Raktha charitha and A.R Murugadoss’s film. So in that gap Anand expects to finish Ajith’s film.
The actor is still searching some other director to present the film as a sleek and glossy action entertainer.
Ajith keeps his fingers crossed to say who will direct his 50th film.
That is the question which will be answered soon. The final decision has to be taken by Thala.
