Thala Ajith's Nerkonda Paarvai is the hot topic that is on the lips of almost all K-town audiences. The movie is nearing its release date and will be hitting the screens on August 8th. The Tamil remake of the super hit Bollywood movie Pink, Nerkonda Paarvai has Ajith and Shraddha Srinath reprising the roles played by Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee in the original. Directed by H Vinoth, this movie is jointly bankrolled by Boney Kapoor's Bayview Projects LLP and Zee Studios. Though the buzz surrounding this movie is high, the reports doing the rounds state that the pre-release business for this movie has not taken off. Some reports also state that the distributors are not coming forward to purchase the theatrical rights as the price quoted by Boney Kapoor is said to be beyond their expectations. However, we have some good news in this regard.
A little birdie who follows the industry happenings tells us exclusively, "The acclaimed production and distribution house Gemini Film Circuit has expressed interest in purchasing the distribution rights of Nerkonda Paarvai!" However, even before we could let the happiness sink in, we hear another contrasting report.
