Ajith Kumar's debut Hindi movie Asoka starring Shahrukh Khan was not too successful for the actor. Though his performance got rave reviews, he did not act in any Hindi movie after his first film. Last year, the Thala said that he was happy in the Tamil film industry and he was not interested to act in other language films. However, he seems to have changed his stand, as he is reportedly gearing up to re-enter Bollywood.
Rumours are rife that Ajith Kumar is all set for his second innings in Bollywood. The buzz says that the actor will be starring in the remake of his last year blockbuster Mankatha. Venkat Prabhu, who directed the original version, is helming the Hindi version too. The rights of the Hindi version is with Gnanavel Raja and the process of choosing cast-crew have already begun.
The buzz says that Ajith Kumar will be stepping into the shoes of Arjun Sarja in the remake and not his role of a suspended cop. However,Mankatha also starred Trisha Krishnan, Arjun Sarja, Lakshmi Rai, Mahat Raghavendra and others in the cast. The film is about the betting money, which is involved during Indian Première League (IPL).
