Anushka to woo Ajith in Thala 57
Actor Anushka joins hands with Ajith after their successful meeting in Gautham Vasudev Menon’s Yennai Arindhaal. The movie, which is fondly called Thala 57 by Thala fans as it is the 57th movie of Ajith, is written and directed by Director Siva. It is touted as an out-and-out action thriller like the earlier two collaborations between Ajith and Siva, Vedhalam and Veeram.
Earlier, Nayanthara’s name was associated with the project and latest reports suggest that the makers have approached Anushka to play the leading lady. Anushka has confirmed the offer and revealed that nothing has been finalized so far. The initial schedule of the movie was derailed due to the knee surgery of Ajith and now director Siva and the team looks forward to start rolling the movie in May.
Ajith, who is going through one the flourishing periods of his career has struck gold with two back-to-back blockbusters in 2015. The Gautham Menon flick Yennai Arindhaal catapulted the actor’s profile and helped him to grab a lead in the Kollywood race. He followed the success with another big bang, Vedhalam which broke box office records.
His two blockbusters made Ajith the hottest macho star in South India. The actor enjoys a huge fan following that recently earned him the Best Actor Award in IBNLive Movie Award’s online poll. Ajith bagged the trophy winning over stars like Mammootty, Prabhas, Prithviraj, Vikram, Kamal Haasan, Dulquer Salman, and Sudeep. He earned a massive 46.88% of total votes polled.
There are also reports making their rounds suggesting an interesting on screen combination. Some sources suggest that Mohanlal and Ajith will share screen space together in the upcoming Vishnuvardhan directorial. Even though the makers are tight lipped about the whereabouts of the project, sources hint at an explosive union of the two superstars in the South.
The untitled flick has already generated a lot of buzz in Kollywood as it brings together Ajith and Vishnuvardhan after the massive hits like Billa and Arambam. The actor-director duo has a considerable fan following in Mollywood too. When the complete actor joins the league, the untitled flick becomes the most expected movie of the year, both for Mollywood and Kollywood.
Director Siva has also roped in his Vedhalam team, cinematographer Vetri, music director Anirudh who rocked Tamilnadu with his Vedhalam number Alumo Doluma and editor KL Praveen, for Thala 57. As their Thala leaves behind the injuries and flops to emerge as the box office phenomenon, the fans have all he reasons to celebrate.
