cue from superstar Rajinikanth, Ajith is all set to play a
full-fledged hero and a villain in his upcoming untitled venture
with Gautham Menon. We had earlier reported that Ajith and Menon
are coming together for the new film which has Ajith essaying a
copís role. It now turns out that Ajith plays the villain too in
Ajith has been pumping hard at the gym to acquire a tough
physique for his copís role in the film. He is said to have shed
as many as 8 kilos so far; sources close to him say that he
would be sporting an 8-pack abs look in the film. Ajith is to
essay dual roles in the film; the second role besides the copís
role would be that of the villain in the film.
Itís not for the first time, though, that
Ajith would be essaying a negative character on screen: he had
done so with aplomb in films such as Vaali, Villan, Attagasam,
Asal and Mankatha. The film is expected to go to the floors
soon. Menon, who hadnít been on talking terms with Harris
Jayaraj for some time, has brought Harris back to score the
music of the film.
Ajith and Vijay are set for a Deepavali clash at the box-office,
which would be their second such clash this year after their
Pongal clash witnessed Ajithís Veeram and Vijayís Jilla
releasing on the same day and turning out to be successful.
