Nothing exciting came up till one day last year. Ajith suggested a remake of ‘Pink’ in Tamil. She (Sridevi) immediately agreed saying it was the most appropriate and timely film to make, and Ajith would bring all the elements required to make it into a great Tamil film,” said Boney Kapoor. Ajith and Sridevi have acted together in Gauri Shinde’s Hindi movie English Vinglish.
