Actor Ajmal, who impressed audiences with his performances in Mysskin’s Anjaathey and K V Anand’s Ko, has suddenly been missing in action in Tamil although he has been doing really well in Malayalam and Telugu cinema.
Ask him about this and the qualified medical doctor-turned-actor replies, “I have done four films in Telugu and three in Malayalam. Here in Tamil, I am unhappy that I haven’t got any proper stories. When I have a good producer, I haven’t got a good story and vice versa. My last two films Karuppampatti and Vetri Chelvan were a flop here. To make a movie succeed, you not only need a good script, you also need a good team.”
The actor might not have been busy with Tamil films but his Telugu film has now got dubbed in Tamil and is all set to release here. Giving details of the film, Ajmal says, “The film is titled Mella Thiranthathu Manasu in Tamil. Nikitha plays the heroine in this film, which has been directed by Vamsi. I play a very lovable character. I play a guy who will do anything to keep his word.”
The film is about a man’s search for his childhood love. It is about a guy who intends to wed the very same girl, elders in his family had identified as his future wife when he was a kid. The film has music by Chakri and dialogues by Nandu.
Ajmal is extremely pleased that his Malayalam film, Loham, which released only last week , has been evoking good response.
“Mohanlal sir plays the hero while I play the villain in the film. My character is a powerful one. I play a Tamilian in the film. I play the son of the Finance minister. I have been receiving a lot of accolades for my role in it,” he signs off.
