The entertainer flick is nearing completion with just 10 days of shooting left to be completed. News from the Mankatha camp is that Ajith has decided to go for a natural look as far his middle-aged get-up in the film is concerned.

He has reportedly told the director of Mankatha, Venkat Prabhu that he did not want to opt for wigs but would leave his hairstyle as it is. Sources in Kollywood say that Ajith’s current looks, with grey hairs, has something to do with the get-up in Mankatha.

Explaining of the same, filmmaker Venkat Prabhu said, "Like I said earlier, Ajith and I decided to go in for a new styling in terms of his look and it was finally sir who suggested this George Clooney look. Incidentally it goes well with the character Vinayak in the movie. I am confident that his look will click in a very big way once the movie is released."

The director clears the misconception that it is a gangster film, "Mankatha is a traditional card game played in the state by betting sums of money. Similarly, here too, it’s about different people trying to do something and how everything changes at a particular point." Though he was tightlipped about the theme, sources say that it is about cricket betting during the IPL season.
