Yes! You read it right. Yesteryear beauty Sridevi is all set to make a comeback in a movie titled ‘English Vinglish’. This is going to be a trilingual to be made simultaneously in Hindi, Tamil and English and is going to be directed by Gauri Shinde. Director R Balki, who made movies in Hindi like Cheeni Kum and Paa, is producing this trilingual flick. However, the biggest buzz about English Vinglish is that the movie unit has convinced ‘Thala’ Ajith Kumar to do a role in the Tamil version of the movie.
According to the sources, Ajith Kumar is supposed to play an extended cameo role in this movie. People who have been following Indian cinema for many years would know that, this is not something new for the Thala. Ajith has already done some cameo roles in Tamil and Hindi flicks, with his small role in Shah Rukh Khan’s historical flick Samrat Asoka being the best example.
Sources close to the actor reveal that Ajith Kumar is trying to involve himself in the recent trend of big stars doing cameo and extended cameo roles nowadays. Superstar Rajnikanth appeared for a very short cameo role in Shah Rukh Khan’s Ra One last year. Ilayathalapathy Vijay too did a cameo role in Hindi remake of Siruthai, Rowdy Rathore, along with actor Akshay Kumar, for the sake of his best friend Prabhu Deva. Hence, it seems as if cameo roles are now being an area of interest for Ajith Kumar too.
Another source, however, reveals a different story. The source adds that Ajith Kumar has been a great fan of actress Sridevi since his childhood days. Hence, as soon as the cameo offer came along his way, Ajith Kumar immediately agreed to do the role in English Vinglish. For your information, the yesteryear Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan is doing to same extended cameo role offered to Ajith in the Hindi version of the movie!
