Mumbai, 30 July 2012: Actress Sridevi’s re-entry “English Vinglish” is to be released in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. While the ‘Man In The Plane’ with Sridevi would be Megastazar Amitabh Bachchan in Hindi version, it would be Ajith in Tamil-Telugu version.
Tamil star Ajith who replaces the Big B in the Tamil version will shoot with Sridevi next week.
Says a source close to the project, “Big B has never done a Tamil film before. And though he was game to do a cameo in that language for Balki’s wife’s maiden film, Balki felt it would be inappropriate for the Big B to make his Tamil debut in a cameo appearance. Ajith who is a huge superstar and has just scored a blockbuster Billa 2 at the boxoffice, seemed a far better bet to play that vital cameo.Balki approached him on his wife Gauri Shinde’s behalf and Ajith agreed. Who would say no to a role with Sridevi in her comeback film?”
