Tamil superstar Ajith and director Siva are teaming up for the 57th film of the former's acting career.
Catch had previously reported that the shooting schedule of the untitled film will begin in London on 15 July. However, according to the latest update, Sathya Jyothi Films - the production house that is bankrolling Thala 57 - plans to kickstart work on the film sooner. The decision has been taken in keeping with the auspicious Tamil month of Aadi - which falls between 16 July to 17 August. This period is considered to be an inauspicious time to conduct poojas for films and to start new projects.
The film, which will see Ajith play a double role, will be actor's third outing with director Siva. The duo's previous films, Veeram and Vedalam were huge hits at the Box Office. According to reports, one of Ajith's roles in the film is that of an FBI agent.
The names of Kajal Aggarwal, Anushka Shetty and Irudhi Suttru fame Ritika Singh are doing the rounds for the female lead of the film.
An official confirmation about the shooting date, the title of the film and the female lead is expected soon.
