Bollywood actress Vidya Balan is all set for her debut into cinema in her mother tongue, Tamil.
Vidya will be paired opposite superstar Ajith Kumar in the remake of Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu starrer Pink.
The producer of the film 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.”
The shooting of the film has started and is underway in Hyderabad.
Along with Vidya and Ajith, the film also stars Arjun Chidambaram, Andrea Tariang, Sujith Shankar, Adhik Ravichandran, Abhirami Venkatachalam, and others.
According to grapevine, it was late Sridevi’s (Boney’s wife) wish that Ajith does a film in her husband’s production.
In the Tamil version of English Vinglish, the Viswasam star Ajith had made a special appearance.
Earlier Boney said, “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.”
He further added that they 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 10th April 2020,” asserted Kapoor.
