'Mankatha', the game beginsAug 19, 2011 PS
Ajith's 'Mankatha', directed by Venkat Prabhu, is all set to hit screens this September.
" 'Mankatha' is a boys' film and the story revolves around five persons; among them four are bad and the fifth is very bad (Ajith aka Vinayak)," said director Venkat Prabhu.
The director thanked Ajith and Arjun for accepting their respective roles. He also confirmed that Ajith has no double role in the film. Interestingly, when Venkat wrote the first draft of the script, Ajith was never on his agenda. He kept his usual gang of boys in mind while writing the characters. Initially, they even considered Vivek Oberoi for the central character, but that just didn't work out.
'Mankatha' has a huge star cast that includes Trisha, Anjali, Arjun, Vaibhav, Premji, Ashwin, Andrea and Mahanth. The film is produced by Dhayanidhi Alagiri's Cloud Nine Movies and scored by Yuvan Shankar Raja. Reportedly, 'Mankatha' is an action thriller which brings up match-fixing sagas in international cricket matches. Click the Movie button below for more info:
