The film is produced by Boney Kapoor, who recently opened up about his decision to team up with Ajith Kumar.
Boney told a Tamil daily, “When Ajith played a cameo in English Vinglish, Sridevi wanted to produce a Tamil film with him. But we couldn’t find a good story till last year. And that’s when Ajith suggested that we can remake Pink in Tamil.”
He added, “I feel proud to produce a Tamil film, and I am happy to work with Ajith Kumar.”
