After Thala Ajith's Kreedom opened to poor response and strong criticism from the stars fans, the films director AL Vijay and its producer edited the climax of the film. The step was taken so as to get more crowds into the theatres where it was playing over the weekend.
The remake of the Malayalam classic of the same name, the film has Trisha and Raj Kiran in additional roles. The climax of the film is a sad one with Ajith's character not being able to make true his fathers dream of becoming a cop. His fans have not reacted well to the scene. After the films first show, thousands of Thala's fans protested against the film being a disappointer.
Responding to these protests, the director did a little bit of editing to the film. The fans were not happy with the reedited version of the film. So they protested again. The director AL Vijay then decided to change the entire climax of the film so as to please Thala’s fans.
Now the climax has been re edited and has been changed to make the ending of the film positive and happy. In the new ending Ajith kills the villain and gets the post of the police sub-inspector. The director said after changing the climax that the same was done to please Ajith's fans.
In more news about the actor, he will again collaborate with his long time friend and director Saran. They previously collaborated in the film Attagasam. This project of theirs will their fourth film together. Saran’s first film Kadhal Mannan had Ajith playing the lead role and was a big hit. It gave Ajiths fallen career a new lease of life. After this film their next film together was Amarkalam.
Saran’s next venture Gemini was to have Ajith in it but due rifts between the actor of his director friend, AVM signed Vikram to play the role initially meant for Ajith. Two years later, Ajith and Saran again bombed the Box Office with Attagasam. Now the duo are coming tighter after another two years. Lets see if this time their luck works them and if they are able to set the box office on fire. This is a time when they are both in need of a hit with a combination of flop sin the films Vattaram, Muni, Azhwar and Kreedom. It is rumoured that Saran’s Gemini Banner will produce the film after the shooting and post production work of Asin and Surya’s Vel is done with. Hari is directing it.
