It’s now confirmed that Ajith’s 50th Golden Jubilee film is going to be directed by Venkat Prabhu and its titled Mangatha. The shoot of the film produced by Dhyanidhi Alagiri’s Cloud Nine will start in September.

It will be a multi starrer and a bi lingual in Tamil and Telugu. The film also features upcoming Telugu actor Manoj Manchu, son of veteran actor Mohan Babu and another Telugu star who is yet to be confirmed.

Neetu Chandra will be the heroine, though there will be another glam girl also. The film will have music by Yuvan Shankar Raja.

Venkat Prabhu is giving finishing touches to the script, which will be based on a group of cons. Though there were rumours that it will be on the lines of John Travolta- Hugh Jackman action packed con movie Swordfish, sources say it will be more on the lines of Steven Soderbergh’s classic crime thriller Ocean Eleven.
