Ajit’s Kireedam climax has been changed on the request of audiences and fans of the actor. Now the climax has been re-edited, with a positive ending, and will be screened in all theatres across Tamilnadu from Sunday (July 29) evening.
In the new climax, hero Sakthivel (Ajit) after killing the notorious criminal wanted by the police, a voice-over with the Madras High Court in the background says that Sakthi is pardoned. Later he gets a medal from the President of India and the film ends with a shot of Ajit coming in police uniform and saluting his dad.
The audiences of Tamilnadu will not accept a superstar like Ajit as a loser in the end. Remember that Ajit’s Mugavari (2000) climax which also showed him as a loser was changed due to audience’s request. And the Sivaji Ganesan classic Vasantha Maligai(1973) climax which showed him dying was changed to a happy ending three days after the release which later turned out to be a blockbuster.
Says director A.L.Vijay: “Kireedam is doing well at box-office especially in cities like Chennai and Coimbatore. But we are forced to change the climax due to popular request. A press statement will be issued by K.Balaje soon.”
