Looks like a grand treat for all Thala Ajith fans and Tamil movie buffs is on the cards this Diwali as it is speculated that the Mankatha star has embraced a dual role in Vedhalam.
Ajith, whoes acting career boasts of movies that has him in dual or even multiple characters, was last seen taking up such a role in the movie Asal way back in 2010.
Though it is a known fact that he will be appearing in two different get-ups in Vedhalam, if this flick showcases Ajith in two different roles (as theorized), there is absolutely no doubt that his 56th movie will turn out to be a dual treat for his fans.
It is also said that 'Vedhalam' is actually Ajith's byname for his character revealed in the first look poster and that his real name is kept under wraps so far.
With more than 85 percent of the film completed (including post production and CG works), the film is expected to face the censor board before the end of October.
Also, the much awaited teaser is expected to go online this Thursday or Wednesday midnight to be precise.
