It has been widely reported over the last few months that Ajith will join hands with Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru director H. Vinoth for the Tamil remake of Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu starter Pink. On Friday, the project was officially launched in Chennai and it will mark the foray of well-known producer Boney Kapoor into Tamil filmdom. In a statement, it has been announced that it was late actor Sridevi's wish that her husband produces a film with Ajith in Tamil.
"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,” Boney Kapoor said in a statement. Ajith had played a cameo in the Tamil version of "English Vinglish".
On his decision to produce a Tamil film, Boney Kapoor said," Tamil industry has always been special for me. In fact, it’s been a long journey involving Ajith to collaborate for a film, which he took up as a sheer commitment from the time he shared screen space with my wife in ‘English Vinglish’. Accordingly, we both earnestly searched for suitable content that will add a special mileage to our respective works. We are now delighted to have joined hands for ‘Pink’."
The statement further added that Ajith and Boney Kapoor will also join for one more project after Pink remake, which has been confirmed to release on May 1, 2019. It is yet to be announced who will direct the second project in the collaboration of Boney Kapoor and Ajith. It has also been revealed that Yuvan Shankar Raja will compose music for Pink remake, while Nirav Shah will crank the camera.
