Ajith’s Signs 5000 ‘Mankatha’ Posters, Literally!
Ultimate Star Ajith starrer ‘Mankatha’ seems to be the most expected movie so far this year. Recently, the movie’s trailer was launched during ‘Azhagar Samiyin Kudhirai’ in multiplexes and audience roared with joy watching their thala on big screen.
Sony BMG will be launching the audio of ‘Mankatha’ on May 20. The CD will have a single track ‘Vilayadu Mankatha…’ and is priced at Rs 49, and wait, that’s not that. The CDs come with a poster signed by thala Ajith itself! It’s no usual signature where a hero signs one poster and the rest are digitalized, Ajith wanted to please his fans and is using all his breaks in three days and is signing all the 5000 posters by himself! The poster has him donning a look never seen before and is a landscape one. It’s a look that will prove the buzz that was making rounds recently about the movie. Now we’re sure fans will be thronging to music stores on May 20 not just for Yuvan’s score but to get a glimpse of their thala and bag his autographed poster…
The song is sung by Yuvan Shankar Raja, Ranjith, Premji Amaran, Anita and Sucharitha, a new talent introduced by Yuvan. The song is set in Bangkok in a club – Club Hollywood, and was shot for four consecutive days.
Yuvan was also present during the shoot although he did not come on screen and dancers from Bombay and Bangkok danced for the peppy number. The disco club’s real speaker was utilized that made dancers shake their legs even off screen! We also hear that a lot of the crowd in the song are people who actually visited the club during the shoot, giving it a more ‘reality’ feel.
Paring with a song set in a club, Yuvan has had his lyrics in a mix of Tamil, Hindi and English. While Gangai Amaran penned the Tamil parts, Yuvan worked on the English and Sucharitha on the Hindi lines.
Well, looks like ‘Vilayadu Mankatha’ will make waves in DVD stands, especially with thala’s actually signed signatures! We’ll get back to you shortly with more updates on TamilWire.com…
