Thala Ajith-starrer Nerkonda Paavai gets a new release date
Ajith Kumar-starrer Nerkonda Paarvai has a release date. As per a newly released poster on Monday evening, The Tamil remake of Pink is set to hit theatres on August 8.
Ajith will reprise Amitabh Bachchan's role as a lawyer while Shraddha Srinath plays Taapsee Pannu's character.
The trailer, which was released earlier last month, has a few shots in the courtroom and they've recreated the scenes from the original movie, convincingly. In one shot, one sees Ajith asking Shraddha if she's a virgin. When she doesn't respond, the question is repeated in Tamil this time. She replies 'no' in Tamil.
Going by the visuals, the film looks like a faithful remake of Pink. It promises an intense courtroom drama and Ajith hasn't been seen in such a fierce avatar in a long time.
Directed by H. Vinoth, Nerkonda Paarvai also stars Vidya Balan, Mahat Raghavendra, Shraddha Srinath, Andrea TariangAand Abhirami Venkatachalam among others.
Apparently, it was late Sridevi's wish that Ajith does a film in her husband's production.
"While working with Ajith in English Vinglish, Sridevi wanted 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 most appropriate and timely film to make and Ajith would bring all the elements required to make it into a great Tamil movie," Kapoor had previously said.
The film features music by Yuvan Shankar Raja. Popular lensman Nirav Shah has cranked the camera.
