Husband and wife director duo Pushkar-Gayatri made heads turn with their crime saga Vikram Vedha, which was extremely well received by critics and audiences alike. Earlier this week, rumours did the rounds that Pushkar and Gayatri might team up with Ajith next. Speaking to Deccan Chronicle, director Pushkar said that he's surprised to learn about these reports being circulated and said that they're still working on the script of their next project.
"We are still in the process of finalising our script and after it gets ready, we would start pitching it to the actors. Though, our script would suit any lead star, the protagonist would be chosen depending on his availability and other factors,â€ť Pushkar said. On the reports about collaborating with Ajith, he said, "We donâ€™t know from where the news on Ajith sir being roped in for our project cropped up. But to be very honest, who would not like to collaborate with a star like Ajith sir," he said.
It has also been confirmed that Ajith's next will again be with director Siva and this will mark their fourth collaboration. Vivegam producer Sathyajyothi Films will once again bankroll the project and the film is rumoured to be the sequel to Veeram. The film will have music by Anirudh Ravichander while Vetri will crank the camera.
The director duo might next also work on the Hindi remake of Vikram Vedha, which is tipped to be made with Shah Rukh Khan. The project is likely to roll from next year and will be produced by Sashikanth, who bankrolled the original.
