Period films are the toast of the K’town right now. After Vijay starred in a fantasy period drama Puli, now it is Ajith’s turn to embrace the genre. It is said that Vishnuvardhan, who is currently working on a period story set in the 9th century, is writing keeping his favorite actor Ajith in mind.
“Vishnu’s story is against the backdrop of the famous Brihadeeswarar Temple in Thanjavur. It will deal about the famous Chola king Raja Raja Chola I,” says a source in the know.
Vishnuvardhan is writing this script with writer Balakumaran, who is well known for his work in Kadhalan, Gentleman, Baasha, Nayagan and Pudhupettai. Will Ajith suit the role of Raja Raja Chozhan?
