The dashing and much-loved Ajith Kumar is arguably one of the most bankable and successful stars in Tamil cinema today. During his highly eventful association with Kollywood ,‘Thala’—as moviegoers like to call him—has won the love of movie buffs thanks to his refined personality, gripping performances and down-to-earth nature. Furthermore, he has delivered quite a few hits and proved that success is his middle name. Now, there is some good news for his well-wishers. During a recent press meet, director Gautham Menon confirmed that he is keen to rope in the actor for the eagerly-awaited sequel to their 2015 hit ‘Yennai Arindhaal’. He also added that he plans to meet Ajith with a bound script soon.
“I plan to meet Ajith sir in the next five months with a bound script for Yennai Arindhaal 2. Let’s see what happens,” he added.
Well, this is some exciting news and we hope that ‘Yennai Arindhaal 2’ does indeed end up happening. In case you did not know, ‘Yennai Arindhaal’ was an action-thriller and featured Ajith in the role of a cop. The supporting cast featured names such as Trisha and Anushka Shetty. Shortly after its release, GVM had said that a sequel would be made and would feature the protagonist in a different avatar.
“I think right from the word go, there was always a plan that in case the film does really well and people like Ajith’s character, we could get into a sequel and take this journey forward. Satyadev is no longer a police officer, so the story can be devoid of all the police activities. I would like to take up this story and I’m sure Ajith sir will also be interested if I convince him with a good screenplay,” he had added.
On a related note, GVM is currently working on ‘Dhruva Natchathiram’ which has Vikram and Aishwarya Rajesh in the lead. As far as Ajith is concerned, he will soon be beginning work on ‘Viswasam’.
