A grand celebration marked the inauguration of Ajith’s next film ‘Asal’. Expectations of the film, which have already been high, because of the Ajith-Saran-Baradwaj combination, have increased manifold after Superstar Rajinikanth declared that he could see the movie’s success gauging the grandeur during the movie’s launch itself. “I will definitely wish the team again when they release the film and meet with success,” said the superstar.
“I worked with Sivaji Films after I did ‘Baba‘ which did not run well. But ‘Chandramukhi‘ became a huge hit. Likewise Ajith also needs a hit in his career now. And I think he has chosen to the right people to give him that,” said the actor, who showed up with his daughter Soundarya Rajinikanth.
Director Saran called this an ‘Asal’ Ajith film, which is like no other earlier film of his. Ajith called this an important film in his career as an actor. “I’m grateful to Sivaji Films for giving me a film like this,” he said.
Director K Balachandar, the mentor of Saran, started shooting for ‘Asal’, and wished the team all success. Others present at the launch of Ajith’s ‘Asal’ at Annai Illam were P Vasu, producers AVM Saravanan, Muralidharan, directors Vijay, Vishnuvardhan, Raja, Vairamuthu, Yuhi Sethu, actors Suriya, Karthi and Shakthi. The heroines for the film are still being finalized and will be announced in a week, informed the director.
Prabhu and Ramkumar welcomed the guests and assured fans that ‘Asal’ would be a big hit and a film that they will enjoy seeing their hero in. Shooting for ‘Asal’ will begin in the first week of May in the city.
