But did you know that Sridevi was the real reason behind the makers roping in Ajith for the role? Boney Kapoor recently revealed that it was his wife, the late Sridevi, who wished for Ajith to play the role essayed by Amitabh Bachchan in the Tamil remake of Pink. The actress wanted Ajith to be the first actor that Boney’s production house worked with down South. Nerkonda Paarvai is Boney’s debut in the Tamil film industry as a producer. Impressed by the actor, Boney went on to sign yet another film with Ajith, which recently went on floors.

This is what Boney Kapoor had tweeted on the day of the film’s release.

That Ajith is one of the most loved and grounded actors in the industry is known to all. Everyone who has worked with him has only good things to say about him and this includes Shah Rukh Khan, who worked with him during Asoka. For more such entertainment, watch Yaaradi Nee Mohini streaming on ZEE5.
