Ajith will be seen reprising Amitabh Bachchan’s role in the Tamil remake of Bollywood film Pink, bankrolled by Zee Studios and Boney Kapoor. H.Vinodh, associated with blockbusters like Sathuranga Vettai and Theeran Adhigaram Ondru, will wield the megaphone.
Shoojit Sircar, Ritesh Shah and Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury wrote the script for Pink, while Aniruddha helmed the project.
