After the release of Thuppakki, all eyes are on director Murugadoss and his next moves. He is next directing a Hindi movie with Akshay Kumar in the lead and this is expected to be the Hindi remake of Thuppakki.
When asked if he would do another film with Ajith, who gave him the initial break with Dheena in 2001, the director says that he is ready to do a film with the star anytime even if that means giving up on the project that he is doing at that time. He is regularly in touch with Ajith even now and is grateful to him for having faith in him as a newcomer. He is available forever for Ajith, he says. It is also said that Murugadoss has a script ready for Ajith.
