Will Ajith and Vijay come together for Mankatha 2?

Politician-turned-producer J Anbazhagan caught media’s attention when he expressed his desire to cast two stalwarts of Tamil cinema together

Ajith and Vijay are probably the two most popular stars of Tamil cinema. The duo is often compared to the superstar duo of Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan. Even though the actors maintain a cordial relation with each other, their fans are always attacking each other on the social media. Now what if Thala and Illaya Thalapathy shared screen space in near future.

Yes, we know! That would be humungous. A recent comment from politician-producer J Anbazhagan has been a hot topic of discussion among Thala and Thalapathy fans. Apparently Mr Anbazhagan wants Ajith and Vijay to join hands for the sequel of Ajith’s hit movie Mankatha. The producer expressed that Mankatha 2 would be a perfect platform for two stars to come together. Vijay and Ajith have earlier worked together in a film called Rajavin Parvaiyile in 1995. But since then the two actors have established themselves as bankable stars and have not done a film together.

Vijay is currently busy wrapping up AR Murugadoss’s Kaththi with Samantha. And Ajith is shooting for Gautham Menon’s untitled flick with Trisha and Anushka Shetty.  With their fans always at loggerheads, one wonders if there is an ego clash between Vijay and Ajith. If offered a role, will Vijay agree to work in Mankatha 2 given that the film’s prequel was blockbuster that starred his arch rival?

If Mr Anbazhagan manages the casting coup of bringing Thala and Thalapathy together, we’re sure that the film will be celebrated as a festival across Tamil Nadu.
