Mahesh in Ajith flick
Mahesh Manjrekar is happy to have bagged a role in a Tamil movie to be produced by AM Rathnam and directed by Vishnuvardhan.
The actor is kicked about this forthcoming movie, which is likely to go on the floors on May 31. “Thankfully, there were no date problems. I will be joining the film’s crew in August,” says Mahesh, who will be essaying the role of a villain in the film. The film stars Ajith, Aarya, Nayantara and Taapsee Pannu.
Director Siva of Siruthai fame is eager to start his next directorial venture, which will feature Ajith in the lead. The director is riding high on a success wave, as his recent Telugu venture Daruvu has been declared a hit.
On rumours that the Ajith starrer will be a remake of Daruvu, he says, ‘There is not even an iota of truth in the claim. Ajith sir’s film is based on a fresh script and it has no relevance to Daruvu.’
However, Siva says that he has plans to remake Daruvu in Hindi and Tamil. ‘I have received offers to do the Bollywood and Kollywood versions. I will think about it and make a decision soon,’ he says.
