While it was earlier stated that Vidya Balan was set to play a key role in Ajith’s next, a remake of Hindi hit ‘Pink’, it has now been confirmed that the actress is indeed playing the actor’s pair.
Boney Kapoor, who is bankrolling the movie directed by H Vinod, has said, “We are excited about introducing Vidya Balan to the Tamil audience; she is paired with Ajith and her role is a very special one.”
While it is learnt that Vidya would play Ajith’s wife, it has also emerged that Shraddha Srinath of ‘Vikram Vedha’ fame is doing an important character in this yet untitled flick.
An excited Shraddha says, “There were two rounds of auditions and only after that did they sign me on. The whole process took a little over a month I guess. I’ll soon start shooting with the team.”
Plans are on to complete the project as a quickie and to release it on May 1, the birthday of the ‘thala’.
