SS Rajamouli's green flag for Ajith's film
Ajith's 55th film to be directed by Gautham Vasudev Menon is on full swing of per-production. The director has zeroed in Anushka to pair out Thala.
When director Gautham Menon approached Anushka to play Ajith’s lead pair in the film that he is to direct, the lady did not have the requisite call sheet. Following this, she almost decided to forego the offer.
However, Anushka had a chat with her director SS Rajamouli, who is directing Baahubali with her in the lead, to check out if she could accommodate Ajith’s film.
The discussions did turn out to be fruitful with the director giving Anushka the go-ahead and now she is all happy to sign the dotted lines for the Ajith starrer, say sources.
Ajith who has given back to back super hits in Arrambam and Veeram that released for Diwali and Pongal respectively is starting his next film within a very short span of time. The Pooja of the film is expected to take place on 6th of February and shooting may commence soon after that.
