The Tamil remake of Amitabh Bachchan’s Pink, Nerkonda Paarvai, of ‘Thala’ Ajith Kumar will be releasing on August 8. Boney Kapoor had tweeted a poster on Monday morning claiming that fans would be privy to an important Nerkonda Paarvai update at 6 pm. As expected, it was about the release date of the movie.

“#NerKondaPaarvai will release Worldwide on August 8th (sic),” tweeted the film’s producer Boney Kapoor.

The release poster shows Tamil superstar Ajith standing with a rod in style in his famous salt and pepper look.  

The movie is the remake of Bollywood flick Pink. The Tamil version of Pink is directed by H Vinoth and features  Vidya Balan playing Ajith's wife, Shraddha Srinath, who will be seen playing Taapsee's character. Abhirami Iyer has been roped in to play Kirti’s role whereas Andrea has been retained for her character. Delhi Ganesh, Arjun Chidambaram, Ashwin Rao and others are part of the cast too.

In Ajith's Nerkonda Paarvai, he will be playing the defence lawyer fighting against powerful men, played by Big B in the Hindi version. The trailer shows Ajith delivering some powerful dialogues, beating down a goon with a rod in style, while sporting his famous salt and pepper look, which will be a treat to his fans.

In an interview with a news agency, Boney had said, "While working with Ajith in English Vinglish, Sridevi had expressed her desire of Ajith doing a Tamil film for our home production. Nothing exciting came up until one day last year when Ajith suggested remaking Pink in Tamil. She immediately agreed as she thought it was appropriate and timely and that Ajith would bring all the elements required to make it a great Tamil film."

According to reports, Boney is planning to get Ajith to do a Hindi film soon to fulfil one of the wishes of his wife Sridevi, who wanted Ajith to be part of a film produced by her husband.
