Thala Ajith who has geared up for the shooting of his upcoming film Viswasam, will reportedly begin with the shooting of his next film to be produced by Sridevi’s husband Boney Kapoor. To people who don’t know, Sridevi and Ajith worked together in the Tamil version of English Vinglish and managed to impress fans with their brief onscreen interaction. On the late actor’s 55th birthday, Boney Kapoor, her husband, is all set to start Thala Ajith’s next film. As a promise made by Ajith during the shooting of English Vinglish, the action hero has decided to begin with the film’s shoot from today.
The film will be directed by Vinoth who has two hits to his credit, Sathuranga Vettai, and Theeran Adhigaram Ondru. It is being said that Ajith had promised Boney Kapoor to bail out him from his financial crisis. Ajith decided to do his bit for Boney as the Kapoors share a warm relation with Ajith’s family. Thala’s immense respect for Sridevi is the reason why he agreed to work with Boney Kapoor. –
