A summer bonanza
The 50th film of actor Ajith has finally started rolling. Titled Mangaatha, the film is directed by Venkat Prabhu and has Nagarjuna, Premgi and newcomer Mahaath in the lead along with thala Ajith.
The film was launched recently in Chennai and the trailer of the film, which will be released exclusively in theatres by the end of this month, was shot.
A source close to the unit says, “The first scene of the movie was canned on August 2, the day Ajith entered the film industry, 18 years ago.
However, we will start shooting by the end of this month after finalising the other details. However, Venkat is sure that he wants to release the film in 2011 as a summer treat to Ajith fans.”
Though Neetu Chandra and Lakshmi Rai were finalised to play the female leads, the source maintains that the final cast and crew of the film will be revealed soon.
“The film, which is being produced by Dayanidhi Alagiri, will have music by Yuvan Shankar Raja and Sakthi Saravana will handle the camera,” adds the source.
