In spite of making an official confirmation, the producers themselves have been facing problems with Ajith Kumar"s 50th film. Earlier, Gautham Menon was supposed to wield the megaphone for this film, which is produced by Dayanidhi Azhagiri of Cloud Nine Productions. Now we hear that Gautham Menon has walked out of the project due to difference of opinions and Venkat Prabhu has replaced him.
It now looks like this tentatively titled film Mangaatha will be a multi-starrer and Venkat Prabhu is currently holding talks with a Tollywood superstar for playing another lead role. Venkat Prabhu"s cousin Yuvan Shankar Raja will score the music while Sakthi Saravanan is expected to handle the camera.
As of now, Venkat Prabhu is in Hyderabad, discussing the script with few actors and official confirmations pertaining to his project will be made shortly as the producers plan to commence the shooting by the first week of August.
Let"s hope that this gets to be the finalized team and Ajith Kumar doesn"t have to change again or else his 50th film may get released on his 50th birthday…
