Ajith has started working on Pink‘s Tamil Remake. According to the reports, the actor has started the shooting of the film ‘AK 59‘ in Hyderabad, which originally starred Taapsee Pannu and Amitabh Bachchan.
The Tamil superstar has started working on the project after paying his respects to the late Sridevi on her first death anniversary on Saturday in Chennai, Hindustan Times Reported.
It was Sridevi‘s wish that Ajith does a film under her Husband’s banner since both the actors worked in ‘English Vinglish’.
”Ajith suggested remaking Pink in Tamil. She (Sridevi) immediately agreed with him as she thought it was the most appropriate and timely film to make and Ajith would bring all the elements required to make it into a great Tamil film,” Boney had said in a statement.
‘AK 59’ is directed by H. Vinoth and bankrolled by Boney Kapoor.
“I have been following the work of Vinoth, who owns an impeccable cult of filmmaking. Especially, his previous release Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru had amazed me incredibly for its raw and realistic treatment. The way he chooses unique story premises and transfuses them with engrossing narration assured me that he will be the right person to materialize Pink in Tamil,” Boney Kapoor had said earlier.
