The trailer of Ajith Kumar's next film, Nerkonda Paarvai released on Wednesday evening at 6pm to huge anticipation on social media.  The film seems to be a departure from his usual masala fare.

The two-minute clip indicates that the Tamil version shall stay fairly faithful to Pink's storyline, with Shraddha Srinath also getting prominent screen time. However, there is one definite 'mass' moment for Thala fans: a robust fight scene shown towards the end of the trailer.

Ajith has retained his popular salt-and-pepper look (more salt than pepper in fact) for the project, and the trailer begins with the now-iconic line from the original, "Are you a virgin?".

Ajith reprises the role of a lawyer, which was played by Amitabh Bachchan in Pink, while Shraddha Srinath plays Taapsee Pannu's role in this official Tamil remake. It also marks Boney Kapoor's debut Tamil production venture. Nerkonda Paarvai is directed by H Vinoth of Theeran: Adhigaaram Ondru fame. The music is scored by Yuvan Shankar Raja.

The film is expected to hit the screens on August 10. The film's cast includes former news anchor Rangaraj Pandey, who appears in the trailer as a lawyer too.

Ajith had signed a two-film deal with Boney Kapoor's production house, and the second film is also speculated to be helmed by Vinoth.

Boney Kapoor has spoken in glowing terms about his star. In previous interviews, Kapoor had said that he admired the actor's passion for racing, and revealed that it was natural that their next project would be a thriller that 'uses [Ajith's] passion for speed'. Kapoor had also openly stated his desire to see Ajith in Bollywood films.

Nerkonda Paarvai is also touted to be the second Tamil film, behind Rajinikanth's 2.0, to release in China. Ajith's previous outing, Viswasam, was a blockbuster, and took in record collections at the domestic and worldwide box office.
