perfectionist that he is, Ajith is said
to have turned it down. It was to star in
the remake of one of the most critically
acclaimed movie of the year – Taare
Zameen Par. Aamir Khan is said to have pointed
his finger towards Ajith when production
house Moser Baer informed him that they
would like to remake it in Tamil. But Ajith
politely turned it down, stating that Aamir
had lived the character whereas he could
only act; consequently, the essence of the
film would be lost.
Initially, director-turned-actor Cheran
was to have directed this film, but with
Ajith’s refusal, Cheran has decided
to don the grease paint himself.
