Do you know of any star hero of this generation who has done three of his last four films in the direction of only one director? Well, there is one such hero, and the name is ‘Thala’ Ajith Kumar. And, all those three films belonged to only one genre, ‘Action’.
Ajith and Siva’s first collaboration ‘Veeram’ was released in 2014. Despite receiving mixed reviews, the action family entertainer was a success at box office. This film was recently remade in Telugu by Pawan Kalyan as ‘Katamarayudu’.
The second film in this combo was ‘Vedalam’ (2015), an action-masala film, whose storyline has similarities with NTR’s ‘Oosaravelli’. Ajith’s performance, perfect blend of action and sentiment and some stunning sequences made this film a runaway hit.
They joined hands for the third time for ‘Vivegam’, which hit screens on August 24 this year. This Spy thriller received mixed reviews but it took a thunderous opening at box office.
After doing three films together, all action films, Ajith and Siva are gearing up to join hands yet again, for a fourth film, and this time its not going to be an action film. It will be either a family entertainer or a historical period film, high chances are there for it to be the latter. This will be Siva’s immediate next film. Ajith may do another film before moving back to Siva’s project.
In fact, Siva made his directorial debut in Tollywood with Gopichand’s ‘Souryam’. He did ‘Shankam’ and ‘Daruvu’ before going on to make three back to back films with Ajith.
