A while ago, there was much speculation about who would direct Ajith’s 49th film. After considering three directors – Gautham Menon, Vishnuvardhan and Saran – and much deliberation, it was decided that Saran would direct it.
Now, almost the same scenario prevails while choosing the director for Ajith’s 50th film.
First, Kollywood was abuzz with news that Venkat Prabhu will direct the star’s 50th film. But now, there have been reports claiming Ajith had a story discussion with Murugadoss on the phone! It is also heard that Murugadoss plans to produce the project too!
It is indeed a hard choice for Ajith. A film with Murugadoss, who is elated after having set new box office records in Bollywood with his Ghajini, will definitely be magnificent. And with the director willing to produce it, it definitely means he has something up his sleeve.
On the other hand, Venkat Prabhu, who had been requesting Ajith for a film, has established himself as a director with unique ideas and filmmaking style. Undoubtedly one of the most popular directors of Kollywood today, he has assured Ajith that he will make sure his 50th film grand and something that will be remembered for long.
Though some say Vishnuvardhan might direct Ajith’s 50th film, this seems to be a far-fetched claim as the director has other plans. So, it is now either Venkat Prabhu or Murugadoss. Indeed a very difficult choice to make!
