Ajith Kumar, currently filming for Good Bad Ugly, visited the Tirumala Tirupati temple. He was spotted in a white shirt and dhoti during his early morning darshan at the temple. A fan recognised him and gifted him an idol of Lord Venkateshwara, taking a photo with him.

It’s uncertain whether the actor was accompanied by his wife and former actress, Shalini, along with their two children.

The actor was in Hyderabad to shoot the first schedule of Adhik Ravichandran’s directorial, Good Bad Ugly, which is nearing its completion.

Currently, Ajith is taking a break before returning to shoot Vidaa Muyarchi, directed by Magizh Thirumeni.

Bankrolled by Lyca Productions, Vidaa Muyarchi, billed as a thriller, features Trisha, Arjun Sarja, Regina Cassandra, and Arav, in prominent roles.

The technical team includes cinematographer Nirav Shah, editor NB Srikanth, and music director Anirudh Ravichander.

Filming for Vidaa Muyarchi commenced in October 2023 under the direction of Vignesh Shivn, who was subsequently replaced by Magizh Thirumeni. Netflix has secured the digital rights for this one, after its theatrical release.

Vidaa Muyarchi to release for 2024 Diwali?

According to reports, Vidaa Muyarchi will begin filming later this month in Azerbaijan, and the entire production is expected to be completed during this schedule.

Arjun Sarja, addressing the press, after his daughter Aishwarya’s wedding, mentioned that only 20–30 percent of Vidaa Muyarchi remains to be completed. Although an official release date has not been confirmed, he indicated that the film is aiming for a Diwali release.

Meanwhile, the makers of Good Bad Ugly, backed by Mythri Movie Makers, announced its release date as 2025 Pongal.

Apart from the technical team comprising cinematographer Abhinandan Ramanujam, editor Vijay Velukutty, music composer Devi Sri Prasad, and stunt choreographer Supreme Sundar, details about the cast for Good Bad Ugly remain undisclosed at this time.

Ajith Kumar has not committed to any new projects following Good Bad Ugly. Reports suggest he is currently considering various scripts and has not decided on his next.
