The project, which marks the foray of producer Boney Kapoor into Tamil film industry, was officially launched in Chennai in December 2018 and the team is currently shooting in Hyderabad. On Monday, Boney Kapoor revealed via a statement that Vidya Balan will be making her Tamil debut with this project and that she has been paired opposite Ajith. He also revealed that Shraddha Srinath would be reprising the role of Taapsee Pannu from the original movie in Hindi.
Apparently, it was late Sridevi’s wish that Ajith does a film in her husband’s production.
Boney Kapoor had earlier said in a statement: “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. 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.”
Boney Kapoor also confirmed that he has another project with Ajith in the offing.
“We hope to bring the remake of Pink to theatres on May 01, 2019. 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 April 10, 2020,” he added.
Directed by H. Vinoth, the film will feature actors Rangaraj Pandey, Adhik Ravichandran, Arjun Chidambaram, Abhirami Venkatachalam, Andrea Tariang, Aswin Rao and Sujith Shankar among others. The statement also added that the project, as per the original plan, is gearing up for release on May 01, 2019. While Yuvan Shankar Raja has been signed to compose music, Nirav Shah will crank the camera.
