Top director AR.Murugadoss got his debut movie while he worked with S.J.Surya as an assistant. The story that AR. Murugadoss narrated to actor Ajith during the shoot was much liked by the actor and so he decided to give AR. Murugadoss a chance with “Dheena“.
AR Murugadoss did a good job and made good use of the opportunity provided. Actor Ajith, who was being featured in soft romantic movies such as “Mugavari“, “Kandukondein Kandukondein“, got a break as an action star through “Dheena“. From that movie onwards, Ajith‘s fans started referring to him as “Thala”. Only since this movie did actor Rajnikanth become a fan of Ajith‘s movies.
On the other hand, AR. Murugadoss provided hit after hit since “Dheena“, with “Ramana“, “Gajini“, “7am Arivu” and “Thuppaki” and became ranked high amongst Tamil cinema’s top directors. The two have stayed as very good friends to date. Following the success of “Thuppaki“, questions are being raised in Ajith‘s fan circle about whether the two would do another movie together.
Commenting on this desire, AR. Murugadoss says that he is always willing to pair up with the actor who made his very first movie a success. The director says he has a story and script in waiting for Ajith and if the actor says yes, he would be willing to drop all his current commitments and start working on an Ajith movie.
Now the ball is in Ajith’s court. Next Theepavazhi could very well become a Thala – AR.Murugadoss Theepavazh.
