If the latest reports are anything to go by, Ajith Kumar’s upcoming thriller Nerkonda Paarvai might have a release in China later this year after its Indian theatrical release on August 10.
The film, which has been directed by H Vinoth, is the Tamil remake of Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu starrer Pink. The film, according to reliable sources, will most likely release in China in November or December this year.
However, the makers are to make an official announcement regarding its China release. Nerkonda Paarvai, which is being bankrolled by Boney Kapoor, was officially launched in a customary ceremony last December.
The film, which marks the Tamil debut of Vidya Balan in a crucial role, also stars Shraddha Srinath, Andrea Tariang and Abhirami Venkatachalam. The project was materialized to honor’s Ajith’s promise to late Sridevi.
“While working with Ajith in English Vinglish, Sridevi had expressed her desire that Ajith does a Tamil film for our home production. Nothing exciting came up till one day last year; Ajith suggested remaking Pink in Tamil. She immediately agreed as she thought it was the most appropriate and timely film to make and Ajith would bring all the elements required to make it into a great Tamil film,” Kapoor had said in a statement.
Yuvan Shankar Raja, who reunites with Ajith after Aarrambam, has composed music while Nirav Shah has cranked the camera. The film was wrapped up in just three months and it features Ajith in the role of a criminal lawyer while Shraddha reprises Taapsee’s role from the original.
It has also been confirmed that Ajith and Vinoth are set to join hands for one more project later this year or next year.
