‘Chennai 600028’ was about sports. ‘Saroja’ was a thriller. And his last venture ‘Goa’ was a romantic entertainer. But a common thread in all these three films of Venkat Prabhu is comedy.
However, this important factor of Venkat Prabhu movies will get only less importance in his next venture ‘Mankatha’. “The 50th film of Ajith will be an ultimate action entertainer,” say sources in the know.
“Since Ajith is an A-list actor with a huge fan following and this being his 50th film, Venkat has decided to make it as an action movie with a mass appeal,” sources say. Confirming this, the director too says, “Mankatha will be a serious action film with very little comedy.”
Meanwhile, buzz is that Ajith and Tollywood top hero Nagarjuna, who play the lead roles in ‘Mankatha’, will swap their characters in the Telugu version of the movie. Produced by Dhayanidhi Alagiri, ‘Mankatha’ went to floors recently.
