Ritika Singh, who won the laurels of many and also a national award for her performance in Madhavan-starrer ‘Irudhi Suttru’, will be one of the two heroines of Ajith‘s upcoming movie to be directed by Siruthai Siva.
According to sources, Siva approached Ritika recently with the offer and she was thrilled to know that she would be sharing the screen space with the top star. “She will sign on the dotted line soon,” they added.
In the meantime, Santhanam is said to be a playing a key role in the flick. “Though he has decided to play lead roles only henceforth, he relaxed the decision since he has immense respect for Ajith,” sources stated.
To be produced by Sathyajothi Films, the yet untitled flick will have music by Anirudh. Ajith, who is under rest for the past few months after knee surgery, will start shooting for it from June.
