Director Venkat Prabhu has denied reports appeared in a section of the media that his forthcoming venture Mankatha, which is ‘Thala’ Ajith’s 50th venture, is inspired by Jannat.
‘I have not even seen Jannat once. With this being the fact, how could I remake the film? Mankatha is an original idea and the script was not inspired by any other movie,’ the Chennai 600028 & Saroja director says.
Heaping laurels on Ajith, Venkat Prabhu says, ‘I know him since Ji days. He is so down to earth who never thinks about his star status. His lifestyle is a lesson to upcoming actors and we have learnt a lot from him.’
Throwing light on the movie, he says, ‘Mankatha will be a wholesome treat to Ajith fans. It has enough scenes which would make them scream at theatres. My thanks to everyone who have given their best to the movie.’
