Director Venkat Prabhu has always been a strong favorite among Thala Ajith’s army of fans ever since the blockbuster success of Mankatha back in 2011. It was Ajith’s 50th film and the director presented him in an extremely stylish, natural, badass avatar. Demands and questions about Mankatha 2 and his next film with Ajith arise whenever Venkat Prabhu comes out for an interview or a public appearance.
He is now among the frontrunners to direct Ajith’s 60th film after the star wraps work on his ongoing Pink remake. To add more credence to such rumors, the director met Thala on Thursday night at RFC Hyderabad, where the shooting of the Pink remake is going on briskly over the past few weeks.
The director didn’t add any details about the meet and left it open to our imagination. We hope the two indeed discussed the possibility of a new film together; even better if it was about Mankatha 2. Or was it just a courtesy meet?
Venkat Prabhu’s immediate next film would be with STR, and the film has been titled Maanaadu. It would be a political entertainer and the director is in the final stage of writing the film. When this film would begin its shooting is still uncertain!Read More
