Chennai, Aug 23 (): Tamil superstar Ajith Kumar refused to get any remuneration for his cameo role he played for Sridevi’s comeback film English Vinglish. Director Gauri Shinde, her husband and producer Balki, Sridevi and her husband Boney Kapoor all have praised Ajith for his simplicity.
Thala flew to Mumbai for the shooting at his own cost and also stayed at a hotel at his own cost. Sources said that producer R Balki was again and again requesting Ajith that he would at least bear the flight ticket and hotel stay.
But Ajith declined politely and firmly, leaving everyone impressed with his gesture. All have been surprised by the friendliness and simplicity of an actor of his stature.
English Vinglish is the story of an Indian housewife, played by Sridevi who struggles with the alien language and tries her best to cope with it. She does not know to speak English and is made to feel insecure by her family and society at large.
Thala Ajith is making a cameo appearance in the Tamil version of Sridevi’s much awaited comeback film English Vinglish, directed by Gauri Shinde, wife of R.Balki. In the Hindi version, the same role has been done by Amitabh Bachchan and in fact he has completed shooting his part. Madhavan, who has starred in many Tamil and Hindi films, was first thought to play the ‘guest role’ in the Tamil version which has now been offered to Ajith Kumar.
Ajith has finished doing his part in English vinglish. Now, the team has released Ajith’s look from the film. Thala looks trim and fit. The actor has sported stubble and he looks cool in the rugged avatar and looks as handsome as always.
The film is all set to hit screens on October 5.
