Brushing aside rumours about his 50th flick with Gautham Vasudev Menon, top Kollywood star Ajith Kumar is teaming up with young filmmaker Venkat Prabhu, known for his offbeat themes.
Industry sources revealed that Ajith has indeed chosen Venkat Prabhu for his golden jubilee flick, which is interestingly titled Mangattha. Apparently, after tasting success with gangster flicks like Billa, the ‘King of Openings’ wanted a similar genre for his milestone flick.
Venkat Prabhu, who was already on Ajith’s list, floored him with an inspiring gangster script. The movie is to be produced by Dayanidhi Alagiri of the Cloud Nine banner.
After having chosen Venkat, sources say talks are on with a top actress who proved lucky for a versatile star in his recently released film. There is also a buzz that Tollywood star Nagarjuna will also be a part of the project. All the other details are being worked out. An official announcement is expected soon.
In the meantime, Gautham’s cop story project with Ajith has taken a back seat and it is learnt that it could be the Asal star’s 51st venture.
