It has been rumoured in Kollywood that Ajith Kumar’s 58th film might be directed by producer-director A.R. Murugadoss.
It was Ajith who gave Murugadoss a huge opening in the industry by agreeing to star in the young director’s direction in Dheena (2001) which went on to become a super-hit film thereby establishing Murugadoss firmly in the saddle as one of Kollywood’s reliable film-makers. Besides delivering successive hits such as Ramana, Ghajini and Thuppakki, Murugadoss has also forayed into Bollywood.
It was Murugadoss who gave Ajith his now-famous title of ‘Thala’ as it was for the first time that Ajith was referred to on-screen as ‘Thala’ (leader) in Dheena. It is reported that Mirattal, which was to star Ajith Kumar in the lead, directed by Murugadoss and go to floors soon after Dheena, is now getting revived.
Evan as fans of Ajith are yearning for the combination of Murugadoss and Ajith Kumar to work again, it is intimated that Murugadoss, who has just completed the shoot of his Hindi film Akira (which has Sonakshi Sinha of Lingaa fame essaying the lead role), is contemplating making a film with Ajith Kumar.
In all probability, Ajith would first complete the shoot of his upcoming film to be directed by Siva before committing himself to star in Murugadoss’ film. A formal announcement in this regard is expected to be out soon.
