Ajith in his first ever interview on Mankatha to a English newspaper has praised Venkat Prabhu and said he enjoyed doing the film.
Ajith said a lot of credit should go to Venkat Prabhu and the professional team behind the film.
Says Ajith: "Venkat is the finest I have ever worked with. He is meticulous, treats every one on the sets with respect and has full control over all areas of filmmaking."
About the 'negative character' he plays in Mankatha, the actor said: " I play Vinayak Mahadevan, an ordinary man. Money is all that he's interested in. What you will get to see is a very, very bad man in Vinayak. He has in him that villainous streak that would probably make you recoil."
