Ajith’s next to start July 15

Shooting for Ajith’s upcoming film (this is his 57th project and hence fondly called Thala-57) will commence in Chennai on July 15, sources said.

As it is being reported for quite sometime, the film will be extensively shot in foreign locations and the first schedule has been planned in London.

Anirudh Ravichander who gave super hit songs in Ajith and Siva’s previous blockbuster Vedalam has been retained for ‘Thala-57’ also.

Since Santhanam has expressed his inability to be part of Ajith’s next project, as he has decided to focus on hero roles only, director Siruthai Siva has roped in Karunakaran and Sathish.

According to sources, both these actors are extremely busy and are trying to juggle their dates to accommodate an opportunity to be part of an Ajith film.

Anushka Shetty and Ritika Singh (of ‘Irudhu Suttru’ fame) are the lead ladies of the movie, tipped to be a stylish action thriller to be predominantly shot in abroad locations.

Sathyajothi Films will bankroll this yet untitled movie, which will have music by Anirudh. It is to be noted that the combination of Ajith, Siva and Anirudh presented the blockbuster ‘Vedalam’ late last year.
