A star has certain image and his fans, always, has some
expectations from his films. Filmmakers are forced to infuse such
ingredients into films to satisfy them. But in case of Ajith Kumar, it
seems to be quite different. Going against the grain, the actor has
asked Gautham Menon, the director of his
upcoming movie, which is presently called as 'Thala 55', not to add
anything in the story to give a commercial touch to the movie.
Throwing light on the issue, Gautham Menon has opened up about
it to a leading daily. He has said that Ajith Kumar told him to
make a movie that the director is comfortable with. Even if the
director tries to add such scenes in the script, the
Arrambam star asks him not to include it. The Kaakha
Kaakha director is known for making movies without adding much
commercial elements and he has his own style of making films.
"I don't know how to commercialise anything, I have never done
that. There is absolutely no pressure on me from any side," the
Times of India quotes Gautham Menon as saying.
Ajith Kumar is one of the top actors in Kollywood and has a huge
fan base. But Ajith Kumar's suggestion has surprised the industry
as producers shell out the money keeping the star value in mind.
The untitled movie will hit the screens for Diwali and the audio
will hit the stores in November.
