With a significant growth in the number of female lead actors in Tamil cinema industry, it becomes quite a task to cast one in their films for the filmmakers. There are various factors such as the image and reach of the actress across different industries, the look of the actress, her chemistry with the lead star, her comfort level with the kind of character she is about to take up and so on. If the movie involves some big names such as actor Ajith Kumar, then it is sure that the director would take into account many othser factors while casting, because a casting coup would be the last thing on his mind.
Director Gautham Vasudev Menon seems to have gone through this grind for his next movie starring actor Ajith Kumar. The Vaaranam Aayiram filmmaker has chosen the talented Anushka to romance actor Ajith Kumar on screen for his next movie, which is yet to be titled. The sources close to the director confirm that the director has roped in Anushka, who is now one of the senior most among her compatriots.
Even the sources close to actress Anushka confirm this development. The sources reveal that director Gautham Vasudev Menon is yet to narrate the script to actress Anushka but has asked in principle whether she is ready for a movie with actor Ajith Kumar. The actress seems to have given her nod, since the project involves Ajith Kumar and Gautham Vasudev Menon. The sources add that Anushka is planning to join the project’s shooting during her breaks from ongoing Telugu projects such as Rani Rudramadevi and Mahaabali. The sources further add that the shoot would start from the end of Feruary or start of March.
Taking a look at the leading ladies in actor Ajith Kumar’s recent movies, the actor had the chance of sharing his screen space with seniors in the industry such as Trisha, Nayanthara and Tamannaah. This time, it again seems to be a senior – Anushka!
