Chennai, Aug 9 (): After agreeing to the offer to do a cameo role in English Vinglish with Sridevi, it is said ultimate star Ajith Kumar will soon be shooting with Sridevi for the same this weekend in Mumbai.
A few days back, Ajith has been approached by Gauri Shinde’s unit to appear in a cameo role in her directorial attempt, English Vinglish. Ajith immediately accepted the offer as he is a fan of Bollywood-turned-Tamil actress Sridevi.
A source very close to the actor said Ajith is a huge fan of Sridevi and has high respects for her acting skills. When the offer of making a guest role in Sridevi’s film came his way, he gave a nod without a second thought.
Now, Ajith Kumar is getting himself ready to shoot his cameo role of the upcoming bilingual movie English Vinglish. The shooting will take part in Mumbai this weekend.
Ajith is acting in the movie’s Tamil version. He will do the role done by Big B in the Hindi version, with whom Sridevi even made practice English Vinglish sitting on a flight. Sources said Sridevi took Bachchan’s consent to sign on Ajith for the role. Bachchan has never done a Tamil film and obviously doesn’t intend to.
Earlier, the Bollywood megastar Amitabh had done the shoot for both the versions but the makers of the film changed their minds, thinking that it would be nice if they rope in Ajith, as he has a huge appeal among the Tamil audience.
Ajith will be leaving to Mumbai to shoot his portions this weekend. Sources say Ajith will be staying in Mumbai from August 15 to start work on his yet-to-be-titled film with Vishnuvardhan. The shooting schedule of the movie is very long, which might go on for at least two months.
