IS MADE BY AN AJITH FAN
Venkat Prabhu is pulling out all stops to make Ajith’s
Golden Jubilee film different and special. This
was evident in the way the music release function
was held. Since Ajith could not make it to the function
as he is shooting for Billa 2 in Hyderabad, it was
a low key and offbeat event. Ajith is usually not
keen on promoting his films and prefers to let the
suspense build and wow the fans onscreen.
Consequently, the audio was released at a radio
station. Director Venkat Prabhu, Yuvan Shankar Raja
and Vaibhav were present and they made up for the
absence of the rest of the starry cast by keeping
a lively commentary going and interacting with the
fans. It was a very pleasant affair.
Venkat Prabhu said that Mankatha was going to be
a super treat for Ajith fans, because he himself
is a huge fan and therefore made the film the way
a fan would. He said that Ajith fans have certain
expectations from their Thala and he also has always
wanted to see Ajith in a certain way and that is
exactly how he has attempted to promote him. He
also thanked Ajith for being such a sport because
most heroes are reluctant to attempt double –
hero projects but thanks to his cooperation Ajith
and Arjun have come together on screen for the first
time and it is going to be a great combination.
Yuvan looking very much like the youth icon he released
the music in an informal manner and was greeted
by raucous cheers.
Sony Music will be releasing the music online as
well. Pre – booking for DVDs has seen a very
good response and in addition to this, it will also
be possible to download the music in a legal manner.
The makers have requested fans not to encourage
piracy and to buy only legitimate DVDs and watch
the film only in theatres.
The trailer was released recently and it has generated
an absolutely phenomenal response. Ajith is looking
very handsome and debonair and his fans are going
crazy. The Ajith – Arjun combo is also looking
good. The film will have four heroines – Trisha,
Lakshmi Rai, Anjali, and Andrea so there will be
plenty of glamour as well. The action scenes also
look amazing. Looks like Mankatha is going to be
a super fun game!
