It has already been announced that Ajith, last seen on screen in Siva’s Viswasam, will next be seen in the Tamil remake of Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu starrer Pink. The project, which marks the foray of producer Boney Kapoor into Tamil filmdom, was officially launched in Chennai in December and the team is currently shooting in Hyderabad.

On Monday, on the auspicious occasion of Shivaratri, the makers unveiled the film’s title along with the first look poster. Dubbed as AK 59 so far, the film has now been officially titled Nerkonda Paarvai, and the first look poster features Ajith as a lawyer and three leading ladies Shraddha Srinath, Abhirami Venkatachalam and Andrea Tariang as well.

The makers released the poster via a tweet. Directed by H Vinoth of Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru fame, the film’s cast also includes Rangaraj Pandey, Adhik Ravichandran, Arjun Chidambaram, Aswin Rao and Sujith Shankar among others.

The project marks the Tamil debut of Vidya Balan and she has been paired with Ajith in the film. While Yuvan Shankar Raja has been signed to compose music, Nirav Shah will crank the camera. 

On his decision to produce a Tamil film, Kapoor had said in a statement: "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."

Ajith's latest release Viswasam emerged as the second top-grossing film ever with Rs 130 crore total and it has collected a record of  Rs 185 crores becoming the highest-earning movie of Ajith in his career.
