GodFather Blues ! - 19/07/2005
Ajith is the hero in Godfather being directed by K.S.
Because of financial issues, the producer Chakravarthy
of NIC Arts had temporarily shelved the project. So,
Ajith began work on Bala's Naan Kadavul. He grew his
hair long and sported a beard. Now, Godfather will be
revived again while Bala's film is facing other problems.
Therefore, while Ajith is contemplating a make over, the
director K.S. Ravikumar is in a fix.
Kaja Mydeen blames Ajit for his suicide attempt!
Now film producer Kaja Mydeen who survived a suicide
attempt after swallowing 40 sleeping pills (!!) is
pointing finger at Ajit for his bid to end his life!
Mydeen had made veiled threat that he will be holding a
press conference after he recovers. In an interview to a
local newspaper Kaja bhai said: "I lost 8 Crore making
Ajit's Jana which is my biggest flop. The storyline was
changed to suit Ajit's whims and fancies and finally the
film was released after two years. Ajit is a sadist".
Ajit was a sitting duck as he is already going through a
bad patch in his career. Kaja bhai wanted somebody to be
the fall guy and so he conveniently put the blame on the
actor and his film Jana, a matter which is more than two
Industry watchers feel that Kaja simply does not have
the guts to blame the actual persons behind his present
financial woes. Meanwhile no case has been registered
against him for his suicide attempt.
Ajith's hairy problems! – 20/07/2005
S S Chakravarthy has not only touched Ajith for his call
sheet, he's also touching on Ajith's hairstyle!
For old times' sake, Ajith is acting free in
Chakravarthy's 'Godfather.' But Chakravarthy has been
stopping shooting schedules whenever he does not have
the finance to continue. Scheduled for a May 1 release,
the film is stretching on like a chewing gum. There is
no point in hanging on endlessly to an untamed horse, so
Ajith started to grow his hair for Bala's 'Naan Kadavul.'
Sporting long hair, Ajith was all set to start shooting
and Chakravarthy is back, scissors in hand!
Ajith Approaching the Producers Association,
Chakravarthy put a stop to Ajith's working in 'Naan
Kadavul.' According to the decisions announced, Ajith
can work on other films only after he finishes shooting
for 'Godfather.' He can work in other films in the
intermittent time only when shooting for 'Godfather'
discontinues due to financial reasons. Ajith cannot
change his getup that would in any way harm the
interests of 'Godfather.'
Not wishing to create unnecessary debate in the
association, Ajith agreed and sacrificed his long hair.
But Chakravarthy made the great escape.
Neither he will prosper, nor will he allow others to
prosper and 'Godfather' is again neither here or there.
