Bollywood producer Boney Kapoor has started the maiden Tamil venture of his production company Bayview Projects LLP with the official Tamil remake of Pink ( Hindi) The successful film starring Amitabh Bachhan and Taapsee amongst others, was also critically acclaimed. Helming this project will be Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru fame director H.Vinoth.

While Yuvan Shankar Raja will compose the music, the rest of the cast and crew will be finalized shortly. The film was launched today in Chennai.

 On the occasion, Boney Kapoor  revealed an interesting nugget of info, especially  for Ajith fans, "While working together  with Ajith for English Vinglish,  Sridevi had expressed her desire that Ajith  do a Tamil film  for our home production.  Nothing exciting came up till one day last year,  Ajith suggested remaking Pink in Tamil.  She  immediately agreed with him as she thought it was the  most appropriate  and timely film to make,  and Ajith would bring all the elements required to make it into a great Tamil film."

 The producer added, "I am extremely happy about embarking on my production venture in the  Southern Industry, particularly in Tamil which has always been a special zone for me. In fact, it’s been a long journey involving both  Ajith and me to collaborate for a film, which he took up as a sheer commitment from the time he shared screen space with my wife Sridevi in ‘English Vinglish’.

Accordingly, what we both earnestly looked up was a suitable content that will add a special mileage to our respective works. We are now delighted to have zeroed in the official remake of ‘Pink’.
We are initiating the shooting process today and determined enough to hit the screens on the 1st of May 2019. We are subsequently doing another film together and that will be scheduled for to start on July 2019 and to be released on the  10th of April 2020.Both the films are supported by Zee.I am looking forward to a much more enjoyable and great experience working with him. "

Shedding praise on the director have been following the works of Mr. Vinoth, who owns an impeccable cult of filmmaking. Especially, his previous release ‘Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru’ had amazed me incredibly for its raw and realistic treatment. The way he chooses unique story premises and transfuses them with engrossing narration assured me that he will be the right person to materialize ‘Pink’ in Tamil.”

Boney Kapoor is a producer in Bollywood with successful filmography spread over 37 years that comprises of commercial and offbeat films. His fascination for the Tamil film industry from the early days as a producer has been immense, which eventually made him cherry-pick some of the best blockbuster remakes to Hindi. His glorious film- making career started from the super duper hit  Hum Panch to the emotionally loaded Mom in Hindi. More than all, his journey as a producer in Bollywood has claimed him several blockbuster hits across decades with an array of diversified genres ranging from “Mr. India”, which is still regarded as first of its kind, a fantasy film breaking the linguistic barriers and boundaries capturing universal hearts.
