It has already been announced that Ajith will join hands with Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru director H. Vinoth for the Tamil remake of Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu starter Pink.
Last month, the project was officially launched in Chennai and it will mark the foray of well-known producer Boney Kapoor in Tamil filmdom. In a statement, Kapoor announced that it was late Sridevi's wish that he produces a film with Ajith in Tamil.
The latest report thatâ€™s buzzing is that Vidya Balan has been roped in for a crucial role in the film, which has already been confirmed to hit the screens on May 1, 2019.
Vidya Balan is all set to make her southern debut with the two-part NTR biopic in which she has played the role of Basavatarakam, wife of Nandamuri Taraka Ram Rao. If sheâ€™s indeed part of Pink remake, it will mark her Tamil debut.
While Ajith will reprise Amitabh Bachchanâ€™s character, the remake will also star Adhik Ravichandran and Rangaraj Pandey in crucial roles. Itâ€™s still not certain who will play the leading ladies but rumours have been making the rounds that Kalyani Priyadarshan might be roped in to essay Taapseeâ€™s character.
Not long ago, there were reports that Nazriya Nazim was being considered for the role; however, the news died down before it could even be verified or confirmed.
On his decision to produce a Tamil film, Kapoor said in a statement: "Tamil industry has always been special for me. In fact, itâ€™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, what 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 project will have music by Yuvan Shankar Raja, whose last association with Ajith was Aarrambam.
