I m not Confused - Ajithkumar

…says Ajith, stating that issues relating to Mankatha’s release in Tamil Nadu will be sorted out soon
Srinivasa Ramanujam

His upcoming flick Mankatha is described as ‘a Venkat Prabhu game’. And, the current film he’s shooting for — Billa 2 — will be a sort of game for actor Ajith as well. A game he’s played before, and won. Known to be an actor who speaks up for issues close to his heart, Thala — as he’s fondly referred to by his fans — opens up to Chennai Times in a freewheeling chat about his films, the change of guard in the state and more.

• How has Mankatha shaped up?
Going by the post production reports, I’m feeling positive and upbeat about the project.

• How did you arrive on the salt-and-pepper look in the film and how do you expect audiences to react to it?
After hearing the story, it was a unanimous decision by everyone concerned with the project that I retain my natural look. As far as audience reaction is concerned, it’s up to them to answer once they have watched the movie.

• Would you say that Mankatha is a fitting 50th film for your fans? What are its highlights?
Yes, it is my 50th film and it’s a proud moment in my life. Firstly, the film has a good star cast and great music by Yuvan. It boasts of a promising director like Venkat Prabhu and has some very well-choreographed action sequences. Last, but not the least, the presence of Arjun in the film is a big advantage.

• Are you in a state of confusion with regard to Mankatha’s release now that there is a change in government and that the film is produced by Dhayanidhi Alagiri?
I’m not at all confused. I’m a professional and have fulfilled my professional obligations. The film’s producer, Dhayanidhi Alagiri, has conducted himself in a very professional manner. I’m sure he will sort out the issues relating to the release of the film. I’m not worried about the change in government; it’s the troublemakers within the industry I’m worried about.

• How do you see the new rule by Jayalalithaa in the state and its repercussions on the film industry?
As a common man, apart from our basic rights, law and order is of primary concern. I’m sure those matters are being looked into by the new rule. I strongly believe that there’ll be no political interferences as far as the film industry is concerned.

• How is Billa 2 shaping up and are you doing anything specific for your look in the film?
We’re into the second week of filming Billa 2. As on date, all is well and proceeding smoothly. It’s too early to divulge any other details about my role or the film.

• There have been instances in the last few months of you taking to the bike again; you took Venkat Prabhu on a bike ride and rode to Tirupathi with Chakri Toleti. How much of a biker are you?
I’m still very much a biker at heart. But, it’s practically impossible to indulge in it. It is only during moments like filming that I enjoy such luxuries.

• What next after Billa 2?
I don’t know what’ll happen post Billa 2. I’ll leave the future to destiny. 

Quiz Ajith if he’s missing director Vishnuvardhan, who helmed Billa, and he says, “The success of Billa was a team effort. As and when time permits, I’m sure that Vishnu and I will work again. 

CHAKRI TOLETI On his new director for Billa 2, the actor says, “I’m amazed at Chakri’s talent and am sure that he has it in him to live up to the expectations of fans and film buffs.
