Bollywood star Vidya Balan, who marked her Telugu acting debut this year with NTR Kathanayakudu, has been roped in for the upcoming Tamil remake of Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury's critically acclaimed film Pink. Interestingly, this project will mark the Tamil debut of the Tumhari Sulu actor.
The film is scheduled to release on May 1, 2019!
Confirming the lead star cast of the movie, producer Boney Kapoor said in a statement, "Happy to introduce Vidya Balan to Tamil audiences. She is paired with Ajith and her role is very special. Shraddha Srinath has also been roped in for a pivotal role. Rangaraj Pandey plays a very important character. We hope to bring the remake of Pink to theatres on May 1.”
“We are subsequently doing another film together and that will be scheduled to go on the floors in July 2019 and will be released on the April 10, 2020," he added.
Apparently, Boney Kapoor's wife and India's first female superstar late actress SriDevi always hoped that Ajith would do a film with her husband's production house.
Respecting and honouring the same, they present us with this film which also features Adhik Ravichandran, Arjun Chidambaram, Abhirami Venkatachalam, Andrea Tariang, Aswin Rao and Sujith Shankar.
"While working with Ajith in English Vinglish, Sridevi had expressed her desire that Ajith does a Tamil film for our home production. Nothing exciting came up till one day last year. Ajith suggested remaking Pink in Tamil,” Kapoor revealed in an interview earlier.
She immediately agreed 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," he added.
