It is a known fact that director Shankar is eyeing on a sequel to his 2010 blockbuster movie Enthiran. While Superstar Rajinikanth remains to be his first choice to play the male lead, looks like the Lingaa star has not given his nod to be a part of the sequel.
While there were news doing rounds that Aamir Khan might replace Rajinikanth in Enthiran 2, Shankar might in fact postpone Enthiran 2 for a while to start a new project with Thala Ajith Kumar. According to the latest buzz Shankar has already prepared a script for Ajith and the project might go on floors pretty soon.
Shankar had earlier said that he wanted to do a film for producer AM Rathnam as his last association with the ace producer did not work out the way he wanted it to. Shankar's collaboration with AM Rathnam on previous two occasions dished out Kamal Haasan's Indian and Siddharth's Boys. Since the Yennai Arindhaal producer incurred huge losses after Boys becoming a box office dud, Shankar wanted to make another film for AM Ratnam to compensate for the losses.
Since Ajith's successful association with the producer is well known, Shankar had also mentioned he wanted to cast Ajith as his hero for the AM Ratnam movie. Looks like time has come for that particular project to take off as Enthiran 2 might not happen at the moment. Ajith, on the other hand will join hands with Siva of Veeram fame after Yennai Arindhaal.
If everything works out well, Ajith's next after the untitled project with Siva might be a magnum opus with the I director.
