It is hard to believe but it seems to be true: sources close to actress Nayantara, the ‘Queen Bee’ of Tamil films at present, say that she plans to turn a producer soon and that too by producing a film with Ajith Kumar in the lead!
On top as a frontline actress in Kollywood, Tollywood as well as in Mollywood, Nayantara is said to be nursing the ambition to turn a producer for some time now. Needless to say, her beau and director Vignesh Shivan may direct her debut production venture. Vignesh is said to have advised Nayan to cast a leading hero to play the lead role in her first film as a producer.
Nayan, who starred opposite Ajith Kumar in Aegan and Billa, is said to have told Vignesh that she wanted Ajith to play the lead role in the film. Ajith’s assistants let out the fact that his call-sheet diary had been filled till the middle of 2018. Vignesh is said to have personally spoken to Ajith about this, informing him that Nayan wanted to sign him up play the lead role in her maiden production venture.
“You would be paid Re.1 crore per day,” is one of the assurances given by Shivan to Ajith but the latter hasn’t yet committed himself to star in the film. On her part, Nayan appears to be very keen to cast Ajith!
